More Calls For Equality for Jews in Judea & Samaria


Attorney Yossi Fuchs of the Legal Forum for the Land of Israel welcomed the government's plan to adopt portions of the Edmond Levy Report. He urged the report to be adopted not just partially as some have suggested, but in full. Fuchs warned that only adopting part of the report "will give legitimacy to Israel's enemies to undermine our rights in Judea and Samaria."
 
The Levy Report, released in the summer of 2012 stipulates that Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria are totally legal under international law and that Israel should annex those areas with a predominately Jewish population. Such a move would likely end all forced evictions such as the recent incident in the Ulpana neighborhood of Beit El and the Migron demolitions.
