New national priority map merely compensates a few settlements for their problematic security situation
...have not been receiving tax breaks for many years now. Cottage cheese sold in a grocery store in Ofra costs the same as cottage cheese sold in Hadera...
...a new national priority map merely compensates a small number of settlements for their problematic security situation and the difficulties stemming from their geographical isolation..
...The number of settler representatives in the coalition is significantly higher than the number Peace Now representatives. Orit Strock and Uri Ariel did not force their way into the coalition by force, they were voted in.
Minister Amir Peretz, representing the Left in the coalition, decried the removal of Kiryat Gat from the national priority list and the addition of settlements. He only forgot to mention that the residents of Kiryat Gat are eligible for generous tax benefits in accordance with the Negev Law and politicians all over the country enjoy a full exemption for demagogy.
