How Israeli settlements won their best ever deal from Netanyahu

28 Dec

The settlers have won again. The Israeli government has surrendered again.Not for the first time, and certainly not for the last time, the strongest political pressure group in Israel, the one that has terrorised Israeli governments for ages now, blackmailing successive administrations and terrifying even the military’s echelons, has once again proved how potent it remains.Far from waning, its strength grows continually in confrontations with the most nationalist and religious right-wing government in the country’s history, opposed by the feeblest leftist bloc ever, while Israeli public opinion remains totally indifferent.
