'Netanyahu Told Justice Min.: Find Ways to Legalize Outposts'
Culture and Sports Minister Limor Livnat says that following her request, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has instructed the Minister of Justice to find ways of setting up a legal team that will suggest means of giving a legal stamp of approval to Jewish outposts in Judea and Samaria.
The team should be professional and made up of people "external" to the Ministry, she explained to Arutz Sheva.
She explained that the request follows instructions given by the High Court – and accepted by the State – to tear down at least 160 building units in Judea and Samaria immediately after the holidays. There are about one thousand men, women and children living in these houses, Livnat noted. "This is unacceptable and it is solvable."
"In some places we are talking about neighborhoods that have existed for 15 years and longer, like the Ulpana neighborhood in Beit El. It is unacceptable that the State will tear down homes that bought legally."
"I am not sure that it is so complicated," she said. "If you think the right way… it is possible and can be carried out speedily."
