Twenty-three? Big Story

Introducing a new category of posts - "let's contemplate that":-

The story to contemplate:

In a meeting of the Knesset Education Committee earlier Sunday, Justice Ministry representatives said that they had not permitted 23 modular structures to be placed at school sites because they believed that they violated planning laws.

In addition, representatives claimed that they still needed the Defense Ministry to sign off on approval documents. The Education Ministry, however, had already approved the placement of the classrooms, after officially recognizing the need for them around six months ago.

After the ministries all gathered around the prime minister’s table, Netanyahu reportedly instructed Defense Minister Ehud Barak to order the Civil Administration to approve the placements of the structures in Eli, Ofra, Elon Moreh, Itamar, Talmon-Neriya, Adam, and Emmanuel.

During the Education Committee meeting, frustrated National Union MKs Michael Ben-Ari and Aryeh Eldad threatened to offer their faction’s Knesset offices for the students’ use and to offer personal instruction in tents placed outside of the Knesset if no solution was found by the beginning of the school year, set to start in September...

All that for 23 classrooms?
