Freeze extension would be ignored?

Yesha Council Chairman Danny Dayan brushes off the idea of a 'settlement freeze' extension by saying that the revenants will ignore it.

Dayan is doing some wishful thinking. There is no reason to believe that Defense Minister Ehud Barak will not order the security forces to enforce any extension with any less zeal than they enforced the original 'settlement freeze.' And while the inspectors may be willing to ignore construction that took place between September 26 and whenever the freeze takes effect (if it takes effect) if that construction is not continued, I can envision a situation where the security forces would destroy everything if construction is continued.

Please don't just brush off the 'settlement freeze' extension. It's a real threat.

The revanants have to face the fact Barak can and will throttle them - that's always his party's aim since the outset of Oslo and he will use that power vigorously in the event any freeze extension is ultimately approved.

Beside the power of the Israeli state, the revanants count for nothing with Israeli politicians who have far more pressing concerns than whether 300,000 people get build new homes, schools and businesses in the future.

Its not something to be lightly brushed off.
