Jordan’s princeling Abdullah demanded that Israel “stop unilateral moves in the occupied territories.”

When it ruled the West bank, Jordan banned all universities there—as well as almost all newspapers and all political associations—and killed Palestinians in throngs. Jordan financed thousands of buildings in ghost villages in the West Bank to stake the land.

For Israel to stop making unilateral moves means accepting unilateral moves by the Arabs.

The US State Department demanded that Israel live up to her “responsibilities” and remove dozens of Jewish hamlets dubbed “illegal outposts.” Our government promised to remove them, true.

How about Palestinian promises to dismantle their terrorist groups and stop anti-Israeli incitement? Or Obama’s promise to prevent Iran from going nuclear?

Israeli unemployment has declined to 7.3%, according to Bank of Israel, a slight improvement over the crisis bottom a year ago.

That would mean about 350,000 unemployed adults, an estimate way too low considering that Arab women are predominantly unemployed and most Arab men work in the black-market economy while receiving unemployment benefits. Add haredim, the professional unemployed from the development towns, and Ethiopian hordes on welfare, and the total number of unemployed cannot be below 1.1 million, some 20% of the country’s adults.

BoI, however, reports just below 200,000 unemployed, or one fifth of the actual number.

Meanwhile, the government has decided to close down the Wisconsin program which put tens of thousands of welfare recipients to work. The Labor Ministry and trade unions did not like competition.

Two thousand of the Likud Central Committee’s members voted to change the party’s charter and postpone internal elections.

Netanyahu, accordingly, received carte blanche for another year of defeatist policies. The country’s fate was decided by 0.04% of its voters.
