Of course he supports the freeze

Remember 'settler MK' Otniel Schneller who stuck with Ehud Olmert and his Kadima party through thick and thin? Well, I'm sure those of you who remember him will be shocked - just shocked - to hear that he's all in favor of the 'settlement freeze.'
MK Otniel Schneller (Kadima),resident of Maale Machmesh settlement, announced that he supports the temporary freeze order on West Bank construction.

Schneller also urged his party members to back the cabinet's decision to continue construction in Jerusalem due to natural growth: "The construction freeze will help renew negotiations with the Palestinian people while maintaining the national interests of Israel."
By the way, construction in Jerusalem is permitted under the 'freeze' even if it has nothing to do with 'natural growth.' I'm sure in that case, Schneller is opposed.

I wonder what his reaction will be when God forbid the IDF comes to remove him from his home in Maale Michmash (which is outside the 'security fence'), because Israel has decided to give the town to the 'Palestinians.' It seems that may be the only chance that Schneller will ever 'get it.' Maybe some of his leftist friends will find him a house in Ramat Aviv.

Sorry, your comment was accidentally deleted (I just discovered that when comments come back a second time, it's sometimes because they weren't published the first time I told the site to publish them).

But Schneller is from Kadima, not the Likud.

Carl - its alright. I'm aware Schneller is from Kadima but what I was referring to the newly forged consensus in the Likud as well in Kadima and Labor to discriminating against the revanants. And we have the sight of a supposedly right-wing government implementing the kind of policies it would denounce if it was in the opposition. Its enough to make one's head spin.
