Dayan calls for dialogue to prevent Migron demolition

January 22, 2012 15:31

Council of Jewish Communities of Judea chairman Dani Dayan addressed a proposal introduced in the weekly cabinet meeting Sunday that would resolve a court order to evacuate the Migron settlement outpost by relocating homes to nearby state land. "We share the desire to resolve the issue of Migron in an agreed-upon and peaceful way," Dayan said.

"Migron cannot under any circumstances be demolished," Dayan continued, calling on Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to immediately convene all involved parties ... to an intensive and continuous dialogue until an agreed-upon solution is reached."

The High Court of Justice last year ordered the state to demolish Migron by March 2012. The government has since sought a solution that would save the outpost.

"I am not demanding anything of the government that I am not demanding of ourselves," Dayan added. "I am convinced that with honest and continuous dialogue, it is possible to reach a solution that preserves both the rule of law and strengthens settlement."
