Migron Evictee: Press Mikes were the Worst Part
One of the hardest things about the actual expulsion of Jews from their homes in Migron, says one resident, was the massive amount of press and cameras that swarmed around them, clicking pictures and putting microphones in their faces, as soon as their family opened their door to leave peacefully.
Deitch explained that the community of Migron had several meetings where they debated on whether they should leave peacefully or not. After listening to all sides, it was decided that the residents would leave without fighting or violence. Some would walk out peacefully to save their children from trauma, and others would sit in their homes and remain stationary in a non-violent protest. They would have to be carried away.
The family was all together as the police came through the door. Re-living the moment, she said, "They came in very politely." It was still very difficult and emotional for the family. They spoke with the police explaining they needed a few minutes to gather some of their things. When the time came where they had to leave their home, the press had swarmed and converged at their front door.
Deitch told Yonah, "When we walked out of that house, there was such a humongous crowd, that I don't even know how to describe my feelings at that point. The army wasn't terrifying for me, the police were not terrifying for me, the photographers were terrifying, and they terrified my children... and they were aggressive... brutal... some of them were down right nasty."
"Secondly, if Binyamin Netanyahu or Benny Begin or any of the Likud -- barring our dear friends, and we do have some in the Likud, think for one moment that we have forgotten that this is absolutely resting on their shoulders, they will absolutely feel the backlash of it at the next election."
