ANOTHER KICK IN THE BOLLIX FOR THAT ANTI ISRAEL BRIGADE...SORRY, BUT YOUR A PACK OF LOSERS.
Israel helps the new Palestinian city of Rawabi open its doors to its first residents, Israels Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon (Likud) has ordered water to be hooked up to its large apartment buildings.
Rawabi, which is located on a Samarian hilltop between Ramallah and Nablus, is the first planned Palestinian city in the West Bank. It offers affordable modern homes.
Although the first batch of apartment buildings is ready, hundreds of new homeowners have been unable to move in because the city lacks water.
Rawabi, along with other Israeli and Palestinian projects, has been frozen, pending approval from the Israeli-Palestinian Joint Water Committee (JWC), which has not met for the last five years.
"We’d be happy if the Palestinians would sit in the committee, which could then debate projects from both sides,” Silvan’s office said.
His spokesman added that, once the Palestinians return to the committee, a water hookup for Rawabi could likely be approved fairly quick.
