Bibi Buries Report

No one saw this coming, right?

Well, that may be a lie.

Netanyahu set to bury Levy report on legalizing illegal West Bank outposts – Israel News | Haaretz Daily Newspaper.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has decided to bury the Levy Report, which recommends legalizing most unauthorized settlement outposts in the West Bank and making it easier for existing settlements to expand, a senior politician who spoke with the premier about the issue told Haaretz yesterday.

I guess this must be awkward for Liam, who said this:

Levy Report, and responses from government ministers, spells bad news for Israel – Liam Getreu.

MK is right: Israel won’t be imploding today. But if the reaction from government ministers is anything to go by there will be action, or at least Netanyahu’s hand may be forced further than he’d like, especially as peace talks might be starting to begin again.

This isn’t something the Right wants to go away. It vindicates what they’ve been saying all along (‘there is no occupation’) and what they’ve been doing all along (treating the West Bank as a de facto extension of Israel itself despite the very different legal status conferred on it).

I guess everything after “Mk is right” really was redundant.

Far be it from me to gloat.
