"Israel Has a Moral Obligation to Gush Katif"


At as special Knesset session on housing, Member of Knesset Zevulun Kalfa (Bayit Yehudi) addressed the issue of rehabilitating the Gush Katif expellees. He stated that the government "has a moral obligation to the population from which I come. It's not the overall housing crisis, it is a specific housing crisis. There are quite a few families who, even after eight years, still do not see any solution."

MK Kalfa was a resident of the Gush Katif cluster of communities in Gaza before the Disengagement of 2005. He currently lives in Shomria where many former Gush Katif residents relocated.
