Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu will return from his European trip to find that two Likud rallies have been organized to express opposition to the settlement freeze he reportedly negotiated with US envoy George Mitchell in London.
The first, scheduled for Tuesday at Tel Aviv's Azrieli Tower, was organized by Minister-without-Portfolio Yossi Peled. It is not officially an anti-Netanyahu rally but rather a "pro-Jerusalem event," and yet MKs who attend are expected to bash the deal the prime minister is negotiating with the Americans.
The second, set for September 9 at the Likud's Tel Aviv headquarters, openly opposes any freeze on construction in Judea and Samaria and will launch a "National Forum" in the Likud that will actively oppose concessions to the US.
Three ministers have told organizers they will attend the event: Environmental Protection Minister Gilad Erdan, Communications Minister Moshe Kahlon, and Diaspora Affairs Minister Yuli Edelstein. Organizers still hope to attract Vice Premier Moshe Ya'alon and Minister-without-Portfolio Bennie Begin to the rally.

Didn’t he draw a red line in Jerusalem?
And welcome to Free Republic!
Thank you. He has so far drawn a red line regarding Jerusalem, but then again he did run for election on a platform that was against a two state solution. He said he was extremely opposed to a settlement freeze and now he is working one out with Mitchell’s cronies... My point being: he talks tough. What matters most though is what actually happens on the ground. As an Israeli I would be in favor of trading the West Bank for peace if real peace were attainable but it simply isn’t. I pray that Bibi doesn’t fold regarding Jerusalem.
