There is growing rage in Beit El, where residents feel that Prime
Minister Binyamin Netanyahu knowingly misled them when he promised to
build 300 homes instead of the 30 homes to be destroyed in Givat
HaUlpana. Residents are said to be preparing for "a harsh struggle"
over the homes.
Tensions are running high in the community north of Jerusalem. A
Defense Ministry team that came to Beit El to gauge the feasibility
of moving the homes from Givat HaUlpana by a technique that has
become known as "sawing" fled after being pelted with rocks and
paint. No one was hurt.
"The check Netanyahu gave us in his promises has bounced," a source
in the community said. He added that a senior official in the Justice
Ministry told him that there is no way to implement Netanyahu´s
promise to build 10 units in Beit El for every one whose residents
"The prime minister lied in statements that were intended to convince
the ministers to support his position and oppose the Regulation Law,"
the Beit El resident added.
Rabbi Zalman Melamed, the Rabbi of Beit El, issued a letter Wednesday
in which he said: “We call on the entire public and on MKs who are
faithful to the Land of Israel to join in this decisive struggle with
dedication and a willingness to sacrifice.” (IsraelNationalNews ©
