MK Tells Migronites: Do what the Bedouin Do
Nationalists reacted with anger and frustration to the High Court decision that Migron's residents must be evicted from their homes by next Tuesday and most of the homes demolished a week later.
MK Michael Ben Ari (National Union) said: "I call on the residents of the community to behave the way Bedouins would behave if a shed were demolished in Rahat." While he did not spell out what he meant, it is a safe bet to assume he was referring to the violent riots that usually accompany attempts to enforce demolition orders against Bedouins.
MK Aryeh Eldad (National Union) said: "The High Court made the decision to evict Migron by sanctifying the right of ownership when it relates to Arabs, but treading on it when Jews are the landowners. We must hope that tens of thousands will come to Migron to prevent this miscarriage of justice."
Deputy Knesset Speaker MK Danny Danon (Likud) called upon the Prime Minister to convene the Ministerial Committee on Settlement without delay and adopt the Levy Report as official policy on matters of settlement in Judea and Samaria.
"The Likud government must stop ignoring our citizens who live in Judea and Samaria," he said. "If these were houses belonging to Sudanese or Arabs, the High Court would not evict them from their homes."
The residents of Migron said: "This is a black day for the state of Israel, in which the basic rights of right-wing citizens are trampled upon. The High Court gave a stamp of kashrut today to the 'price tag' action by the State Attorney's Office against all settlers. The government of Israel will not be able to wash its hands of the brutal rape that has been carried out before its eyes, to which it consented by remaining silent."
"On this day, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu joins the eternally shameful list of former prime ministers who chose to lift their hand against the settlement enterprise. We are certain that the Zionist citizens of the state will give him his due deserts in time. The residents of Migron lift their heads up on this difficult day and believe that settlement will grow and flourish and blossom and that very soon, the story of Migron will end with two communities at least!"
