I’ll believe this when I see it. Further I expect smoke and mirrors if such debate ever, in fact, takes place. Seeking real men of courage to step up in the clutch to tell it like it is and let the cabinet ministry chips fall where they may. More than the refugees welfare is at stake — the safety, security and welfare of Israel is on the line. But lo, my prediction, no Knesset profiles in courage here. But this is one prediction that I hope I’m wrong about. [...]
Please note here that all of this “storming” by a few dozen Jews took place between 7:45 a.m. until 8:15 a.m. “in contravention of the High Court ruling” permitting prayer as reported in a previous post on 19 October.
It seems that the overwhelming majority of refugee families from Gush Katif and the Shomron towns who have yet to receive shekel one of compensation are not the only ones being lied to by the Sharon regime.

One small little problem, the matter has not been handled as yet and if it is not handled by 25 October, there will be no tombstone on the grave. My sources express grave doubt that the Chazani family will ever see these funds from the government, and just as none but a very few number of evictees have seen any compensation from the government, the overwhelming majority of evictees face court fights for years in efforts to recover that which is due them, that which has been stolen from them.
