Israeli cabinet legalizes Mevo’ot Yericho

The weekly Sunday cabinet meeting, convened by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu in the Jordan Valley, retroactively legalized the small Jewish community of Mevo’ot Yericho, on the outskirts of the Palestinian-ruled town of Jericho. Netanyahu has pledged to apply Israeli sovereignty to all “settlements and areas of strategic and national importance” in Judea and Samaria, if he is returned to office in the general election taking place on Tuesday. They include the Jordan Valley and the northern bank of the Dead Sea.

    So bibi legalize as much as you can since you might loose elections as people remember you are a sisi and you dont treat the gazans as they are to be treated, with force.
    Go to sderot and do a speech and ask for public oopinion on your policy.
