Akunis: No One will Harm Hevron, Not even Barak


Chairman Ofir Akunis of the Likud response team reacted, Tuesday morning, to the eviction order issued to the Jewish residents of Beit Hamachpelah (Machpelah House) in Hevron by saying, "The Jewish community in Hevron was renewed in Passover of 1968. Nobody will be evicted from Hevron during Passover 2012."

Referring to King David's use of the city, Akunis continued, "Hevron, the first capital of the Jewish people, is a symbol of the grand settlement of Judea and Samaria. There is nobody in Israel who will harm it, not even the defense minister."
