Disengagement Victims Victimized

Sorry, but there's a correction. It's worse than I thought. So, please read both this and the other post. Shabbat Shalom

The Disengagement Victims are being further victimized by the Israeli Government.

At last count 1,250 families are still homeless and stuck in hotels.

The "self-employed," a strange idiom--do they employ themselves?--have lost their businesses. Those who worked for them don't have jobs, obviously. I presume that the teachers with tenure are being covered by union regulations. If anyone can verify, I'd appreciate it. The "regional employees," that means those who worked for the Regional Council of Gush Katif etc got their last pay checks, if I heard right.

The hotels aren't free.

The families were supposed to stay just a few days. Some refugees had other housing for investment or owned before they moved to Gush Katif. They are lucky. They have some place to go, at least in theory.

But over a thousand families, those without incomes, are still in hotels, and they are being charged a nightly fee.

The best housing deals are in Yosh, that's Yehuda v'Shomron. There's a problem for the refugees who decide to go to Yosh. They will get less compensation money. And Sharon just stated yesterday in the United Nations that he's planning on destroying more Jewish communities, G-d forbid! The actual difference in housing prices means that it's still a good deal to buy in communities like mine.

B'ezrat Hashem, we'll survive all this.
