Migron Supporters to Demonstrate at Likud Event


Residents of Migron and other activists who support the Binyamin-region Jewish community will demonstrate, Thursday evening, at a gathering of Likud party members in the Haifa suburb of Nesher. The Supreme has ordered the Jews off the strategic hilltop, just north of Jerusalem, and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has blocked action on legislation that would grant government authorization to the community.

The activists say they will provide a reception for Netanyahu with pickets and calls including: "Migron - The Defensive Wall of the settlement enterprise" and "What have you done today to protect Migron?". Defensive Wall was the name of an anti-terror campaign in the Samarian Arab city of Jenin about 10 years ago.
