Immediately after announcing her new party, the Zionist Spirit, an alliance between the Yamina and Derech Eretz parties, Interior Minister Ayelet Shaked traveled on Wednesday evening to the town of Mitzpe Kramim in the Binyamin region, to celebrate with the residents the Supreme Court's ruling that legalized the community and overturned a previous ruling that would have seen the demolition of dozens of houses.
"I came to Mitzpe Kramim to celebrate with the residents the normalization of the community after years of hard legal work. Now all that remains is to build the community properly and get rid of the caravans," said Shaked.
"Common sense and the Zionist spirit won," Shaked added. "As the Minister of Justice I had the privilege of leading the state's position and now the Supreme Court has ruled the right and necessary thing."
MK Yomtob Kalfon (Yamina) who accompanied Shaked to Mitzpe Kramim, told the residents, "I want to wish you luck, friends, you are building a community in the Land of Israel. There is nothing in the world more important than this, I say that and I am excited. I was not born in Israel, and for me every community that is established and built is another step of the independence of the people of Israel."
