The Israeli defense establishment is planning to allow 30,000 more Palestinians to work in Israel, despite the escalation in terror attacks in recent months. The security cabinet has already approved the main provisions of the plan.

The plan was presented to the ministers last month by Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon and Maj. Gen. Yoav Mordechai, coordinator of government activity in the territories. It is under discussion with the relevant government agencies, in preparation for a vote by the full cabinet.

  • This is crazy! If I was living in Israel I’d go nuts over this. Israel seems to go 1 step forwards then 2 steps backwards. This is no different than what is going on in Europe with regards with letting in the Muslim migrants. Insanity!
