Who’s the boss here

In a controversial move, Deputy Mayor Meir Turgeman, head of the local planning and construction committee, has removed from the committee’s agenda a section on a construction project in an Arab neighborhood. He decided upon the change at the last moment, and none of the committee members were informed of the change in advance as required.

Turgeman explained that it was a measure of retaliation for the terrorist attack the day before, on October 9, which took the lives of two Israelis.
