Peace Now Attorney: Migron Built Against Israeli Law

Attorney Michael Sefard, representing the leftist Peace Now organization, told Tuesday's Supreme Court hearing on an appeal by Jews living in Migron not be evicted, that the Binyamin-region Jewish community was built against Israeli law.

In calling for the court to reject the petition, Sefard demanded an end to what he called the system under which communities are built and then the permits are obtained. He said that if all the procedures were followed, a city could be built in Migron, as long as the current community was destroyed first.
