According to his plan, "not 70,000, only 30,000" will be transfered, exiled from their homes. He keeps announcing that he knows how to plan it so that people will leave "willingly." He seems to enjoy "playing G-d" in his position as "token settler" in the Olmert government.
Typical, for a resident of southern Binyamin, the region just north of Jerusalem, Schneller totally ignores the Shomron in his plan. The furthest north he seems to go towards Shechem is Ofra, a good ten minutes south of my home in Shiloh. He's ready not only to wipe Shiloh off the map, but Elon Moreh and Kedummim also.
You may remember that just a few weeks ago, Olmert hinted that Ofra and Beit El weren't immune to his Resettlement Plans.
Nothing is very clear. Schneller has no real authority to make such fatal decisions. Olmert's support is from his own party is dropping.
"The chances right now of implementing realignment are very small. There are many
reservations, including my own," Construction and Housing Minister Meir Sheetrit
said Monday in his bluntest words to date against the plan. "I don't believe in
another unilateral withdrawal. What is going on in Gaza reinforces the
opposition to realignment."
What it boils down to is simple. G-d willing we're home, but the struggle isn't over, not by a long shot.
