|"We've been suckered in." Mel Brooks' Blazing Saddles|
It hasn't even rained yet, and the earthwork is already crumbling. People who have tried the electricity have found that systems don't work, and water tanks are seriously leaking.

Necessary community structures like pre-schools, synagogue etc are not ready, not at all. The residents are scattered in a number of locations. They followed the advice of "experts" and got "suckered in" for sure. Some angry and disappointed residents are wondering why they hadn't gone the way of Givat Asaf which not only hasn't been moved and destroyed, but is even growing.
In the beginning they had lots of political visitors, veteran, powerful Knesset Members, including from the coalition, who promised to help and support them, but when push came to shove, the only ones with them are MK Dr. Arye Eldad and MK Michael Ben-Ari, both from the National Union, Ichud Le'umi.
Coalition MK's are held on a tight leash by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu. This is proof again that it is extremely important to vote for a party that holds principles above all else and doesn't aim to be in a coalition. The larger and stronger the NU is, the better the Likud will be. Right now, the opposition form the Left is pulling him Left. We need a strong and large opposition on the Right!
There's a very important lesson to be learned.
