US Jewish Leaders Urge Netanyahu to Adopt Levy Report


More than sixty-five American Jewish leaders signed a letter to Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu and urged him to adopt the findings of the Levy Report, which asserts that Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria are legal in accordance with international law.

The report, which was authored by a panel of renowned Israeli jurists headed by retired Supreme Court justice Edmond Levy, recommends against the future demolition of communities that had been deemed to be illegal.

“We believe that this conclusion vindicates the Israeli government, which has been unjustifiably vilified by many in the international community, simply because there are Jews living in this particular area of the Jewish State," the leter stated.
