Netanyahu should support legislation to protect Ulpana
Right wing politicians on Monday evening called on Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to support legislation in the Knesset that would prevent the court ordered demolition of five stone structures in the Ulpana outpost which house 30 families.Now wait just a second. Isn't that the other way around, that the residents themselves wanted to live there? I'm very disappointed that she's resorting to that misleading claim it was ever the government alone that had anything to do with Zionism.
“The state has a moral responsibility toward the residents that it encouraged and sent to live there,” said Culture and Sports Minister Limor Livnat (Likud).
She and other parliamentarians spoke out after the High Court of Justice rejected a state request to re-open the case against the Ulpana homes and to allow it 60 days to reassess its outpost policy.Absolutely.
“This is the wrong decision and it is one that the public can not live with,” said Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz (Likud).
“The government must [act] quickly to enact legislation that will prevent the home demolitions and allow the Ulpana residents to stay in their homes,” Katz said.
