The government responded to the murder of the Fogel family by approving 500 new residential units in Judea and Samaria. All of them are in major population centers.That's something they're going to have to do, if they want to be more convincing.
Council of Jewish Communities in Judea and Samaria Chairman Danny Dayan called the approval “a very small step in the right direction.” He noted, “We are lacking 1,000 residential units in Judea and Samaria as of today. More buildings need to be approved addition to building a new neighborhood in Itamar in the name of the murder victims.”
The 500 new units, approved by a ministerial committee Saturday night, are to be built in Maaleh Adumim, Ariel and Kiryat Sefer, adjacent to Modi’in. No new construction was approved in smaller communities, such as Itamar.
According to this article, the victims were expellees from Gaza.
At the funeral, which many attended, Moshe Ya'alon had the following to say:
Vice Prime Minister Moshe Ya'alon said at the funeral: "The murder reminds us all that the struggle and conflict are not about the size of Israel and its borders but about our very existence. The main thing is the ancient right of the Jewish people to its Land, a right we never renounced, and by which we returned to our land after thousands of years."That "education" is Islam, remember.
"When we think of these murderers, we know that they operate against a background of education that teaches them Jews are fair game," Yaalon added. "[This education] did not begin recently or in 1967. It began at the start of the Zionist enterprise and even before it. As long as this murderous education goes on, as long as the incitement continues, any agreement we sign is not worth the paper it will be written upon, because it will be immediately violated ny those who are the products of this education."
