Netanyahu faces opposition in Likud, massive rally

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's 'settlement freeze' faced strong opposition in his Likud party, and it will face a massive rally of revenants and their supporters on Wednesday night in Jerusalem.
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s efforts to calm the anger of Likud Knesset Members and leaders of Judea and Samaria fell on deaf ears Sunday evening as opposition continues to mount within his Likud party and throughout the country against a 10-month freeze on building for Jews.

Building freeze opponents, who include usually more passive communities in Judea and Samaria as well as many living in the rest of Israel, plan a huge protest rally in Jerusalem Wednesday evening.

Another appeal against the government order has been filed with the High Court, and Likud Knesset Member Yariv Levin lashed out at colleague Benny Begin [considered one of the few honest MK's. CiJ] for supporting the mini-Cabinet decree that he labeled "anti-Zionist and anti-Jewish.”


Danny Dayan, chairman of the Council of Jewish Communities in Judea and Samaria (Yesha) vowed that communities will continue to try to stop building inspectors, backed by police and sometimes by soldiers, from entering their communities.
Some of those appealing to the High Court of Justice are families who were expelled from Gush Katif in 2005 who are still homeless.

There's no doubt Netanyahu miscalculated. The only way he can be made to retract it is if domestic pressure on him is greater than his fear of Obama. Its only going to worse for the government in the days to come.
