      Six Knesset Parties Lobby Again Migron Demolition

      Leaders of six different Knesset political parties sent a letter to Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu asking him to prevent the demolition of Migron, a new development community in Samaria.

      Leaders from Likud, Yisrael Beiteinu, Shas, National Union, United Torah Judaism and the Jewish Home Party signed the letter. It reads in part, "Two months ago we came to you with a letter signed by 40 ministers and Knesset members, demanding to exhaust every legal solution possible to ensure no more demolitions of Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria."

      The letter went on to discuss options of land compensation and the legality of demolitions.
