Land of Israel Lobby Meets at Migron

Members of the Knesset Land of Israel lobby arrived at Migron in order to show their support to residents, who will be contesting demands by the government that they leave their homes at the High Court Tuesday. Among those attending the event were MKs Ze'ev Elkin and Arye Eldad, Samaria Council head Danny Dayan, and residents of Migron and other communities.

Speaking at the event, Elkin said that the Lobby was seeking ideas on how to deal with demands that the residents leave their homes, despite the fact that they had purchased the land on which their homes stand. Eldad said that the fact that the residents had purchased the land made the idea of throwing them out of their homes unconscionable.
