MK's Outrage at Attempt to Ban Jews from Land Registry
Jews living east of the 1949 armistice line may be denied access to land records.
In a move that has caused upset in Knesset, Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein is seeking to bar Israelis living north of Jerusalem from finding out who owns neighboring land.
His campaign has angered MK Motti Yogev (Bayit Yehudi), head of a Foreign Affairs and Defense subcommittee, who on Tuesday slammed Weinstein’s intervention as “outrageous.”
