Netanyahu Warns Hamas That Israel Won’t Have Gaza Truce Alongside West Bank Terror, Senior Official Says, Haaretz

“Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned Hamas on Thursday that Israel won’t have a Gaza cease-fire alongside terrorism in the West Bank continues, a senior official said. Netanyahu also announced that he will legalize thousands of Jewish homes in the West Bank, hours after two IDF soldiers were killed and two others wounded in a shooting attack. The Prime Minister’s Office said it would promote the construction of 82 new housing units in the settlement of Ofra, as well as two new industrial zones near the settlements of Avnei Hefetz and Beitar Illit. Netanyahu, who is also defense minister, ordered the Israeli military to expedite the demolition of terrorist homes to within 48 hours following attacks.”

This man says there’s a crisis between Israel and Jews. But he’s causing it, Washington Post

Gershom Gorenberg writes, “Bennett and his party call for annexation of the West Bank settlements and land around them amounting to more than half the West Bank. Bennett and Jewish Home have also been at the forefront of anti-democratic changes inside Israel. They pushed for the recent Nation-State Law, which harms the status of non-Jewish citizens. They’ve led attempts to hamstring the Supreme Court to prevent it from overturning laws that violate human rights….I want Israel to be a country where diaspora Jews can again feel pride. And when Western society is showing that it has not cured itself of hatred toward Jews, it would be best if we all had each other’s back. But Naftali Bennett isn’t the man to explain the crisis in Israel-diaspora relations, or to solve it. He’s the walking, loudly talking embodiment of why it’s happening.”
