Dozens of activists and regional leaders sat down with residents of
the Ulpana neighborhood after the Regulation Bill was voted down to
discuss the next stage of the struggle. Yesha (Judea and Samaria)
Council head Danny Dayan spoke to Arutz Sheva about the meeting.
“We’re very determined, I believe that we will ultimately be the
winners here,” Dayan said. The residents have not yet decided exactly
what form the struggle will take, he added, “or what kind of physical
confrontation, if there will be one.”
Residents, regional officials, and rabbis sat and talked from
Wednesday night until early Thursday morning.
The meeting took place in the home of Didi Dickstein and his wife.
Dickstein lost his parents and a sibling in a terrorist attack in
2002; he and his wife and two children now live in Beit El, where he
chairs the official Ulpana neighborhood Neighborhood Committee.
Dayan said he was heartened by meeting the Dicksteins and other
residents of the neighborhood. “I found myself sitting with people
who will not be broken, who will not despair, and I was very
encouraged by that,” he said.
The fight to keep homes in Ulpana standing will take place on two
levels, Dayan said. Activists will focus on the political struggle,
but will also work on explaining their cause to the public.
“We also need to prepare, in case neither of those struggles work, to
prepare for the struggle on the ground,” he added.
