Settlers hurl stones at contractors visiting Beit El as part of
preparations for evacuation
Settlers hurled stones at Defense Ministry sub-contractors who
visited the Beit El´s Ulpana neighborhood as part of preparations for
an evacuation scheduled to be carried out by July 1. The contractors
left the scene. There were no injuries.
Earlier on Wednesday, Beit El´s rabbi Zalman Melamed called for
counter measures as talks between the settlers and the government
reached a deadlock. "We call on the public, Knesset members and Land
of Israel faithfuls to join a determined struggle with devotion and
willingness to make sacrifices."
Sources close to the rabbi said that "when he says ´devotion´ he
means it." They said the affair could deteriorate into a second and
worse case of Amona. "Netanyahu has failed to meet his obligations
and has done little to try and reach a compromise."
Harel Cohen, the spokesman for MK Yaakov Katz and resident of the
Ulpana neighborhood said, "There are no talks and the government has
nothing to offer us. Obviously if 3,000 men in uniform, who we all
know are quite violent, show up a massive clash could erupt."
