Dayan: Put 'Authorization' Bill Back on the Table


Chairman Danny Dayan of the Yesha Council of Jewish communities, called, Friday, on Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Justice Minister Ya'akov Ne'eman to put a bill authorizing currently unauthorized communities in the region on Sunday's agenda of the Ministerial Committee on Legislation. A number of the communities are under a Supreme Court order to be demolished in the coming weeks.

Dayan said, "This is an urgent application a moment before 'the last minute '- not putting the law up for a vote by the Ministerial Committee on Legislation is breaking the rules. The use of the arbitrary tool of not voting in order to keep the majority from having their say inappropriate and outrageous."
