Likud to Demonstrate Support for Migron Tuesday


Minister, Members of Knesset, party officials and rank-and-file members of the Likud party and the Likud World organization are scheduled to show their support for Migron, beginning at 3:00 Tuesday afternoon in the embattled Binyamin-region Jewish community. Migron is one of a number of Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria where homes face demolition by the government following the end of this week's Sukkot holiday.

Chairman Yitzchak Shedmi of the Binyamin Residents' Council, which is cosponsoring the event, said, "In spite of the release of [soldier] Gilad Shalit, the attention must be focused on the dangerous processes taking place in Binyamin and Samaria (Shomron). Prime Minister [Binyamin] Netanyahu is acting in opposition to the will of the voters and members of the Likud."
