Minister Eitan: Demolish Ulpena Neighborhood


Minister Michael Eitan rejects the calls to allow a free vote on the legalization bill. “No tricks like free voting allowed. The government must oppose the legalization bill.”

According to Eitan, “A free vote will convey to the public that the government has no position on the issue of superiority of the law. This cynical and cowardly attempt undermines the foundations of the principles of the government. The Ulpena issue can be resolved without harming the settlement movement or the decision of the High Court. There is enough land in Judea and Samaria for millions of residents to settle without any land theft."

Speaking to INN Minister Eitan called to honor the decision of the High Court and demolish the Ulpena neighborhood homes, “We cannot steal land”.
