Elkin: Settlement Issues Will be Resolved in a Year


Coalition Chairman Ze'ev Elkin said, Thursday, that at the rate things are going, dozens of Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria should not face any questions about their legality. Interviewed by Arutz Sheva's Hebrew service, the Likud Member of Knesset said the reduced number of communities that still face a question will include Migron, Givat Assaf, Amona and two neighborhoods in Beit El.

While MK Elkin feels that no new legislation is needed, a bill before the Knesset should remove any legal question. He concluded, :"Even if the law does not pass, it can be used as a tool to apply pressure and act as an impetus to find a solution.
