Eldad in Migron: No Need to Destroy Community


Member of Knesset Aryeh Elad (National Union) said Sunday afternoon, during a visit to the Binyamin-region Jewish community of Migron, "There's no reason morally, legally or politically to destroy this blossoming community. Any suggestions for compromise to establish an alternate community next to Migron will be welcomed, if only they include leaving a portion of the community's existing buildings under an arrangement with the Civil Administration." Migron and other Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria face demolition under a Supreme Court order.

MK Eldad headed a group of Hatikvah party activists in a solidarity visit to keep informed of developments in attempts to achieve a compromise agreement that would prevent the destruction of the community or, alternately, organization of a struggle to stop anyone who tries to destroy the community.
