Hundreds of Jewish nationalists and residents of the threatened Givat
HaUlpana neighborhood in Beit El began a two-day protest march
Monday. The march began at the Givat HaUlpana neighborhood and will
end Wednesday outside the Knesset, as the Regulation Bill that could
save the neighborhood from demolition comes to a vote.
On its way to Jerusalem, the march will pass through Givat Assaf,
another neighborhood facing the threat of bulldozing by the state
unless the Regulation Law is passed.
On Sunday, the Attorney General and Legal Advisor to the Government
Yehuda Weinstein held a discussion in his bureau regarding the idea
of moving the Givat HaUlpana buildings to the military base next to
Beit El. He then met with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to share
the discussion´s conclusions.
Various reports later said that Weinstein thinks the idea of moving
the buildings raises legal problems and requires more in-depth
discussion. Weinstein reportedly has a problem with construction of
the homes on land meant for military, not civilian construction.
Netanyahu is expected to continue to demand that his ministers vote
against the Regulation Law. It is not clear if he will also threaten
to fire ministers who disobey him. (IsraelNationalNews © 2012
