The head of the Jewish Home faction, Minister of Science Daniel
Hershkowitz, told Arutz Sheva Tuesday that he "cannot imagine" a
situation in which the community of Migron would be razed.
Minister Hershkowitz said several possible solutions to the problem
are being considered but he prefers not to expose them so as not to
arouse opposition at this point.
The minister expressed satisfaction from the fact that the entire
government still thinks that the solution to the problem should be
reached in cooperation with the residents of Migron. "It is possible
that if a solution does not present itself, we will have to resort to
legislation, although that, too, is not a simple matter," he
said. "Some of the ideas could be voided by the High Court for
Opponents of a law that would legalize communities like Migron, he
explained, claim that the fact that a person who claims ownership of
land has not stepped up to demand recognition of his ownership cannot
serve as justification for another person´s seizing that land.
Discussions of a possible solution are taking place in various
forums, said Minister Hershkovwitz, and other ministers besides Benny
Begin are involved.
Security forces are preparing for a forcible eviction in Migron,
after a High Court decision Sunday to reject a compromise between the
residents and the government. Migron was built with government help
on land whose ownership is unclear, except for the fact that it is
not state land. (IsraelNationalNews © 2012 03/27/12)
