Some Likud members have signed a petition
to limit the supreme court's efforts to demolish Jewish communities in Judea:
Twenty-five MKs have signed a petition calling for a law that would prevent the Supreme Court from continuing to order demolitions in Judea and Samaria.
Deputy Knesset speaker MK Danny Danon (Likud) called Sunday to assemble the Knesset prior to the next scheduled session, in order to vote on the measure. “The Knesset has the power to change the one-sided approach guiding the Supreme Court when it comes to Judea and Samaria once and for all,” he said.
“The Likud will not expel Jews,” Danon declared.
The bill Danon proposes be made law as soon as possible would put an end to the use of forcible expulsion to solve Arab land claims. Instead, if Arabs claimed ownership of land in Judea and Samaria on which Israelis were living with authorization from the state, the Israeli residents would remain and the Arab plaintiffs would be given financial compensation.
I'd say it's a worthy proposal.
