The expected convening of the Supreme Planning Council of the Civil Administration on Wednesday next week, to approve about 3,100 housing units at various planning stages in Judea and Samaria, is highly controversial in the coalition and opposition, and appears to be an explosive event that the government will have to succeed.
The decision that is brought for approval and includes extensive construction in the settlements, including the isolated political settlements outside the blocs, is a very dangerous thing.
Dangerous to Israel's security and the Zionist vision of a Jewish and democratic state. Dangerous also to the security of the coalition.
If anyone thinks that the government of change should produce the reality of one country, then it is a mistake.

Eran Hermoni, secretary general of the Labor Party, referred to the expected approval of the Supreme Planning Council of the Civil Administration and tweeted harsh criticism and wrote: "
Dangerous to Israel's security and the Zionist vision of a Jewish and democratic state.
It is also dangerous for the security of the coalition.
If anyone thinks that the government of change should produce the reality of one country, then it is a mistake. "
Meretz Knesset member Musi Raz sharply criticized the decision and clarified that it was not reached by consensus among government members.
"The decision to build more than 3,000 housing units in the settlements is a decision on which there is no broad consensus in the government," Raz said, emphasizing that the decision "harms the Israeli interest and the prospect of a secure future for all residents of the country."
The catastrophic innovation in this decision @ arik3000 is the hanging of the 3,000 in the 1000 Palestinians in Area C. In this sense, 3,000 such units, in the face of this democratic government, are a disaster.
This formula applies today in all areas not only with respect to construction in despair.
Israel succumbs to severe European and American damage to its independence and becomes a hostage in the Muqata.

At the same time, a level of criticism was also heard from members of the opposition who argued that the current building permit depends on a building permit for the Palestinians as well.
MK Amit Halevi of the Likud attacked the move and tweeted: "The catastrophic innovation in this decision is the hanging of the 3,000 in 1,000 Palestinians in Area C. In this sense, 3,000 such housing units, in the face of the democratic government that is a disaster.
"This formula applies today in all areas, not only with regard to construction in Judea and Samaria." Israel succumbs to a serious European and American violation of its independence and becomes a hostage in the Muqata. "
The chairman of Jewish Power, MK Itamar Ben Gvir, also condemned and tweeted: "Bennett will recover, you are once again yielding to the demand of the Muslim Brotherhood, and giving construction land to Palestinians who will wave the Palestinian flag on them. It will be a cry for generations. You sold everything to Abbas!"
