Foreign Minister and Head of Yisrael Beytenu Avigdor Lieberman threw
his considerable political weight into the debate over Givat HaUlpana
Monday, saying he would back the Regulation Bill that would legalize
Lieberman spoke at the annual CPAs´ conference in Eilat and was
quoted by Maariv/NRG.
"If there is no choice, I will have to support the Regulation Bill,"
he said. "I ask myself if there was an obligation to decide to
evacuate the five buildings. The human consideration should also
enter the picture when we discuss the future of the residents."
"One must understand that these people are the salt of the earth,"
said Lieberman of the residents facing expulsion. "Residents who
received mortgages from the state and the state connected them to the
electricity and water grids. They all work and pay taxes."
The exaggerated focus on the legal problems facing the neighborhood
is "grotesque," the minister said. "It shows the extent to which we
sometimes live within ourselves without looking at the world. With
all that is going on around us we deal with the question of ´sawing
off´ or not sawing off five buildings. We should know how to look at
things in proportion." (IsraelNationalNews © 2012 06/04/12)
