Peace House in Hebron finally gets purchase by Jews authenticated through court

Some justice has been done for the Jewish buyers of the Peace House in Hebron, although there's a final step that needs to be taken:
Right wing politicians called on Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon to allow settlers to move into a four story building — known as Beit HaShalom — in the West Bank city of Hebron, after the High Court of Justice on Tuesday authenticated its purchase by an American Jew from Brooklyn, Morris Abraham.

“We won. We won. We won,” wrote a jubilant Hebron Jewish community spokesman David Wilder on his Facebook page, where he posted those words on top of a photograph of Beit HaShalom, to mark the end of a seven-year battle to strengthen the Jewish presence in that city. [...]

The HCJ’s decision exhausts all legal appeals by the building’s Palestinians owners who had argued the deal, worth over $1 million, was fraudulent The lack of Ya’alon’s approval is now the only remaining obstacle that prevents Jewish families from moving into Beit HaShalom, located just outside the Kiryat Arabia settlement on one of the main roads in Hebron that leads to the Cave of the Patriarchs.

Hebron Jews have in the past argued that their presence there would help safeguard the road to the cave from Palestinian attacks.

While Beit HaShalom is situated in an area of Hebron under Israeli control, if inhabited, it would also be the only Jewish building in a Palestinian neighborhood. The stone structure is also located next to a Mosque and a Muslim cemetery. A Jewish presence in that section of Hebron would expand the slim holdings of the city’s Jewish population of 850, which lives in three separate compounds on the other side of the Cave; Avraham Avinu, Beit Hadassah and Tel Rumaida. [...]

On Tuesday, Construction and Housing Minister Uri Ariel (Bayit Yehudi) called on Ya’alon to pick up where Barak left off. “Today it was conclusively proven that Beit HaShalom belongs to Jews and that its violent evacuation by [former prime minister] Ehud Olmert and Ehud Barak was totally unnecessary. “I call on my friend Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon to allow the Jews to return home,” Ariel said.
It'll surely come with hazards, but in the end it'll be worth it, and Ya'alon should fully approve the living quarters.
