Bennett views himself as Netanyahu's natural successor – and to get there, being nice to the PM is hardly a prerequisite.
Contrary to the current situation, the High Court of Justice will not be the first instance to hear Judea and Samaria Arabs' petitions. But the decisions of the District Court can be appealed to the Supreme Court.
"The IDF's withdrawal from Lebanon and the disengagement plan from the Gaza Strip have proven that terrorist elements […] enter the areas from which Israel withdraws."
The remnants of Israel's left who still command key positions both in government and the military jumped out of their skins at the embarrassing news of an IDF commander who sees himself and his soldiers as the heirs of King David and his victorious armies.
He called Bennett's idea of severing all contacts with the PA and canceling all agreements reached with it an "election slogan."
Sooner or later, this shiny package of a reconciliation is bound to fall apart, since it makes no sense.
"If Bogey is feeling guilty, it should be for the fact that he was guided by his preference of maintaining the fabric of life of Arabs over the actual lives of Jews," Mesika wrote angrily.
"All of us, members of Habayit Hayehudi, residents of Judea and Samaria, and representatives of the party in the rest of the country, have been watching with shock the cynical moves of Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman against the residents of Sde Boaz in Gush Etzion."
Apparently there is a conference planned for Habayit Hayehudi in September, where Rosen wanted to lead the forum on technology and halakha – but was refused because of his jittery track record of slamming doors behind his back every few months.
One major event could sweep any of the four center-field players into or away from leading or becoming a major partner in a ruling coalition. The battle will be joined at the center, while the right and the left will see only minute changes.
Bennett, who has been persistently unavailable for an interview with The Jewish Press Online since before the 2013 elections, plain forgot about the many English speaking Habayit Hayehudi members who do not hail from the US.
Shaked is probably the most popular rightwing minister today, the only politician in her camp who managed to tame the Supreme Court and clip some of its claws.
The bill was scheduled for a debate at the Knesset Committee, but was withdrawn at the last-minute due to objections from Habayit Hayehudi.
Israelis would be more willing to forgive the PM for smoking thousand-dollar gift cigars than for losing the creative edge of the defense apparatus.
A source inside the Trump White House reportedly stated that the new Administration has no inclination to intervene in Israeli policy, or to thwart the sovereignty legislation.
To sum up: cynicism is a common trait among politicians, but cynicism while your own hands are stained with the blood of your victim… that's special.
The Knesset Constitution Committee is scheduled to debate a plan to apply Israeli sovereignty in Ma'aleh Adumim on Monday.
Amona residents will vote on the new outline pending High Court's postponing the evacuation.
Bennett said: 'We succeeded in keeping the residents of Amona on the mountain as well as achieved the strategic Regulation Act last week.'
The Amona residents, who were originally willing to go along with the new plan, are now fiercely against it, as one resident argued, 'It amounts to stuffing us in caravans in a relocation camp."
Should the new bill be submitted without the retroactive application to Amona, Habayit Hayehudi politicians will be expected to prevent clashes between the residents and security forces.
MK Bezalel Smotrich said, 'Apparently, had Netanyahu been in charge instead of Ben Gurion, we would not have had a state. Ben Gurion had courage, he established a state against all odds.'
Netanyahu's office issued a written directive at 4 PM Sunday asking cabinet ministers not to make contact with the president-elect or his staff.
Both Minister Moshe Kahlon (Kulanu) and Coalition Chairman David Bitan (Likud) warned that the bill would be suspended should it meet resistance from the Supreme Court.
Among other things the resolution blames Israel for destroying Jerusalem's historic and archeological heritage by conducting archaeological digs.
