IMRA - [Peace Now comes to rescue?] Government Offers Compromise Agreement on the Evacuation of the Structures at Migron

Dr. Aaron Lerner..
22 January '12..

[Dr. Aaron Lerner - IMRA: Yes, the residents of Migron are furious that they find themselves in what they see as an absurd situation in which as a result of "lawfare" on the part of Peace Now they are being expelled from land that they say was virgin untilled land - not privately owned by anyone - until they built their homes. The question - the extremely practical question - is if they can "win" now if they reject Prime Minister Netanyahu's proposal. Where "win" is defined as succeeding in remaining in their homes.

And then Peace Now's Yariv Oppenheimer comes to the rescue in an interview on Israel Radio, recasting Prime Minister Netanyahu's offer as a tremendous victory for the settlement movement - since the proposal provides for the official establishment of the first new community in Judea and Samaria since Oslo. Oppenheimer went even further, predicting that if the residents of Migron accept Mr. Netanyahu's offer that they will ultimately have their cake and eat it to: with both a new community established and the existing Migron location continuing in perpetuity.

Hopefully Oppenheimer won't stop with one interview on Reshet Bet and will make a huge splash in all the Israeli news media channels. The more vocal his criticism the more palatable the offer to the residents of Migron.]


Government Offers Compromise Agreement on the Evacuation of the Structures at Migron
(Communicated by the Prime Minister's Media Adviser)

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu earlier today (Sunday), 22.1.12, at the weekly Cabinet meeting, said that according to a High Court of Justice decision, the structures at Migron must be evacuated by 31.3.12.

Due to its desire to honor the Court's decision by agreement and peacefully, the Government proposes the following compromise:

Migron residents' permanent homes will be built near the current site, on state lands the planning for which will be arranged.

Upon the conclusion of the construction, the residents will move to the permanent site.

The site will be evacuated and handed over to the Judea and Samaria Civil Administration.

The Government calls on the residents of Migron to agree to the proffered compromise and thus allow the Government to soon request that the Court approve the arrangement.

Prime Minister Netanyahu said that, "This is a good proposal. It does not solve all of the problems, but it does resolve the problem of Migron."

  1. The Prime Minister Of Israel is as insane as the Supreme Court leftists who ordered Migron uprooted in the first place.

    Let's see: he proposes to move permanent homes a few square meters from their current location to please Peace Now and Dorit Beinisch's clique that is no longer in office. Why not simply grant legal title to Migron? Because doing things the common sense way would upset Israel's Left and that cannot be allowed.

    So the Prime Minister offers a proposal that pleases no one and solves nothing.
