Dereliction of Duty: Benny Gantz

Municipal leaders in Judea, Samaria, and the Jordan Valley sent a letter to their residents Monday in which they stated that Defense Minister Benny Gantz has completely halted construction planning work in Judea, Samaria and the Jordan Valley despite his promises.

The letter noted that “In the past year, there was only one planning meeting instead of four as was agreed upon and customary until now.”

In an incident the day before, a group of yeshiva students who held a musical gathering on the site of the Derekh Emunah community south of Jerusalem, were violently and forcefully evacuated. During the incident, one of the participants was arrested and brought to the police station. The incident occurred several days after an Arab threw rocks at the arrested individual’s wife’s car and continues to walk freely without fear of arrest.

In a letter to Defense Minister Benny Gantz, MK Simcha Rotman complained about the minister’s policy regarding the “settlement” movement in general and the haredi “settlement” movement in particular. “You are not contributing to the residents’ feeling of security nor their trust in the security forces,” wrote Rotman.

Gantz’s ongoing, unprecedented and appalling lack of action sends the wrong message to the PA and threatens Israel’s safety and security. His title of Defense Minister should have been Enabler of Terrorism. November 1 is just 8 days away. Israeli citizens have the power to turn this around and restore integrity to their country.
