Hevron Jews ‘Eviction Order Proves Us Right’


The eviction order handed to Hevron Jews on Monday “speaks for itself and makes it clear that there was no problem with the purchase of the home,” spokesmen for the community said.

“The purchase was completely kosher, and the only thing bothering [Defense Minister] Ehud Barak is the fact that Jews live in Hevron,” they said. The eviction order said Jews must be expelled from a building they had bought in order to maintain calm.

Members of Hevron’s Jewish community called on Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to intervene and cancel the order.
