Yair Lapid: Ulpana Neighborhood a Tragedy about Law

Chairman Yair Lapid of the Yesh Atid (There is a Future) party issued a statement, Sunday that, "Evacuation of the Ulpana Hill is a tragedy in which good Israelis who are good Zionists are turned out of their homes, but this is not a debate between right and left (anyway they are both not satisfied with the decision) but about the rule of law."

The statement continued, "If we want to survive, the country must be ready to stand up sometimes in front of its citizens and to say them, "Yes, I will sometimes make decisions that you do not like because that's my job."
