Legal Forum Asks AG to Look at National Priorities


The Legal Forum for the land of Israel asked Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein, Thursday, to examine the legality of the removal of communities in Judea and Samaria from the list of national priorities as conflicting with the principle of equality.

Attorney Avital Tzahor wrote to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu that the decision to remove the communities must be reviewed, citing a Supreme Court ruling against even unintentional discrimination, noting that the removal of the communities was carried out like a hijacking, involving only telephonic approval by ministers, without due process to the communities.
