Minister Begin: “Migron Compromise Fair and Balanced”


Minister Benny Begin defended the Migron compromise at the High Court Thursday morning. “Reaching the compromise was painstaking. I am responsible for this draft of the compromise. My original thought was that Migron would be evacuated. I wanted it done peacefully.

“I feel responsible for the Migron error of the previous government. I understand the residents, who were sent by the government. The pressure on this government was very great. I proposed the compromise, sensing time was short. We said the Court ruling would be enforced unless the residents agreed to the compromise. It is fair and balanced,” added Begin.
