MK Moshe Gafni of United Torah Judaism said Thursday that he would consider bringing a vote of no confidence in the government due to the government’s treatment of the Jews who were expelled from Gush Katif. Gafni’s decision came during a visit to Nitzan with MK Uri Ariel (NU-NRP). The government has acted cruelly, he said, to the people which it expelled from their homes.
Nitzan is the caravan camp where many of the Jews expelled from Gush Katif still live. While the government has promised to build permanent settlements in the Lachish area, the building has been repeatedly postponed.
