The EU scandal: government and opposition are both right

Major European countries lambasted the Netanyahu government’s approval of minor construction beyond the Green Line. Their response is so predictable that one wonders whether Bibi’s actions are not designed to upset both settlers and peaceniks.

Opposition leader Tzipi Livni also criticized the government, not for approving the construction per se, but for alienating Israel’s friends abroad. And she is right; Netanyahu makes life a bit more difficult for them.

The only question is, do we want to fulfill the commandment to settle the land, or do we want to violate the commandment to rely on God only (rather than our European friends)?
