Jewish Rights, Official Statement About Shepherd Hotel

Statement on the Shepherd Hotel
Communicated by the Prime Minister’s Media Adviser

Actions undertaken yesterday (Sunday), 9.1.11, at the Shepherd Hotel were conducted by private individuals in accordance with Israeli law. The Israeli government was not involved.

There should be no expectation that the State of Israel will impose a ban on Jews purchasing private property in Jerusalem. No democratic government would impose such a ban on Jews and Israel will certainly not do so.

Just as Arab residents of Jerusalem can buy or rent property in predominantly Jewish neighborhoods in Jerusalem, Jews can buy or rent property in predominantly Arab neighborhoods in Jerusalem.

Yes, how refreshing. That's why I posted it. We must encourage him.

Meanwhile, under Netanyahu's generosity in Jerusalem, there still remains a defacto construction freeze throughout Yehuda and Shomron.

Bibi has drawn his lines already and he keeps on erasing them and redrawing them in further waves of retreat.

The Civil Administration has its hands tied by Defense Minister Barak and that suits Bibi just fine.

That's for sure and why I wrote the post that follows this one.
