A new organization has been set up
to combat illegal building by Arabs in Israel:
Thousands of residents of Judea and Samaria woke up Thursday morning to a gift – a small plant for their gardens – courtesy of the Regavim organization, days after it successfully convinced authorities to tear down an illegal Arab outpost that was overlooking the Begin Highway, one of the main roads into Jerusalem.
The illegal outpost was built right next to the highway, adjacent to Givat Ze'ev, and constituted a dangerous security problem for thousands of drivers who use the road daily. The Begin Highway is an extension of one of the only two arteries into the city from the center of the country.
Regavim, an organization that works through the legal system to halt the ongoing mass illegal Arab building, and to ensure that Jews are not cheated out of their legal rights to develop Israel, appealed to officials in a letter several weeks ago. “The position of the buildings on a high peak are a security danger, and the ongoing illegal construction at this site necessitates immediate action. As the High Court has stated, security issues take precedence, and that must be the case in this situation,” the letter said. The authorities took note, and last week demolished the illegal outpost.
It's good they're around but it does cost money for their efforts in court, so if anyone can help donate to them, that'll be of great help too.
