Israeli Cabinet Approves Construction of Tel Aviv-Eilat Rail Line

Sunday, February 5th, 2012

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s Cabinet approved the construction of a railway line from Tel Aviv to Eilat, according to the Prime Minister’s Office.

“The 350-kilometer line will be for passengers and freight alike,” and according to the statement, “is due to shorten travel time to a mere two hours.”

PM Netanyahu said that, “We have the ability to create an alternative transportation route that bypasses the Suez Canal – this is an insurance policy.  Israel must become a continental land crossing route and create great power interests.  The Tel Aviv-Eilat railway line, which will shorten travel time to two hours, will change the face of the country.  For 63 years, there has been talk about linking up the periphery to the center, but nothing has been done.  The railway line and Israel’s natural gas resources can forge strong links in the economic, energy and industrial fields.”

The project is expected to take five years from the start of construction.

Tal Law Will Not be Brought to Cabinet Vote

Thursday, January 26th, 2012

The Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) announced Thursday that the Tal Law will not be voted on by the cabinet next Sunday, despite statements last week to the contrary.

PM Binyamin Netanyahu had said that the law, which expires in August 2012, would not be extended for another five years. However, following internal disputes within his Cabinet, he later announced that the law would be extended for another five years.

Officials at the PMO said that there is no need for a government debate on the matter, as it will be discussed in the Knesset ahead of the vote over its five-year extension.

Abbas Meets Terrorists In Turkey

Wednesday, December 21st, 2011

Following PA President Mahmoud Abbas’s trip to Ankara to meet terrorists freed in the Shalit trade, the Prime Minister’s office expressed their disappointment.

The Prime Minister’s office released a Facebook statement that said, “We are disappointed with the unfortunate decision of President Abbas to meet with the terrorist temptress Amna Muna who’s internet trap led to the brutal murder of an innocent Israeli teen. Instead of promoting peace and reconciliation the Palestinian leadership seems to be putting extremist murderers up on a pedestal. This raises serious questions as to their commitment and to their desire to end the conflict.”

Among the terrorists that Abbas met were seductress Amna Muna who was involved in the death of Ofir Rahum in 2001, and Jihad Yaamur who was involved in the kidnapping and murder of Nachshon Wachsman in 1994.
