      Beinisch Regrets 'Settler Issue' for Solberg


      Supreme Court President Dorit Beinisch said, Tuesday, that she was sorry about the great distress caused to incoming justice Noam Solberg during the selection process because he is a resident of the Gush Etzion bloc of Judean Jewish communities.

      Speaking at the swearing-in ceremony for Solberg and justice Tzvi Silbertal, she said that, contrary to reports in the media that Silbertal was a close member of her circle, "It should be that way, I would be happy if he will be in the future. But I know Justice Silbertal from his work."
