Uprooted Migron Residents Demonstrate at Sa'ar Event

Two families, who recently lost their homes to government demolitions in the Binyamin-region Jewish community of Migron, demonstrated, Thursday, at a toast for the Jewish New Year hosted by Education Minister Gid'on Sa'ar, a member of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's Likud party. The families, including children, displayed a sign which read, "It's a time for soul searching. The Likud has to decide if we're building or destroying. Security guards came and confiscated the sign.

Invited to join the toast, the families refused.
