Response to Ken Burch (Reply #48)

50. Israel is guilty...

 

... of bureaucracy. Which, of course, no other country in the world is guilty of.

I have no doubt that if an French NGO started building solar power infrastructure in the Appalachian Region of the US, there would be no talk of permits or building regulation. The American government would welcome the gift of green power to its more indigent citizens and even thank the French for their concern for the comfort of their American cousins.

Of course these devices are no threat to Israeli security. No one in any of the articles cited claimed that they were. I certainly never claimed they were a security threat. However, read the OP and the article I cited above.

The NGO who built this infrastructure neglected to get permits. When given a chance to retroactively get permits, they refused to even apply. They deliberately refuse to work within the Israeli government bureaucracy.

A cynical person might suggest that they knew that these devices they built would incur the wrath of Israeli bureaucrats. They knew this and built them anyway, knowing that, if they failed to cooperate, the devices would be removed and provide an opportunity for blaming Israel. Thank goodness I'm no cynic.
