Rivlin: Adapt Authorization Laws for Justice

Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin said, Friday, that legislation must be adapted for justice in the case of  authorizing the Ulpana (religious girls' high school) neighborhood in Beit El and other Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria threatend with uprooting, just as is being done in the case of Bedouin building in the Negev.

Interviewed by Kol Yisrael government radio, Rivlin noted that the residents who face eviction believed they were operating within the law and on behalf of the state.
