Left or Right: Whose Government Is This Anyway?

Israeli security forces on Wednesday morning evacuated a vineyard in Samaria’s Shiloh Valley belonging to Chen Ben Eliyahu’s Meshek Ahiya. The evacuation followed a 2021 High Court ruling that ordered the Civil Administration to destroy some 42 acres of vines.

MK Bezalel Smotrich sent Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu an irate letter headlined: “Urgent! The displacement of a vineyard in Binyamin due to delays in implementation of the agreement to transfer powers to the Civil Administration and the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories.”

Despite the orders of Netanyahu to halt the demolition, security forces resumed the destruction of the Jewish owned orchard in Samaria Wednesday. Let’s remember Netanyahu’s campaign promises. Now it’s time for him to keep them. Transfer of powers to Smotrich is required by the coalition agreement and must happen without further delay.
