is a good proposal. It does not solve all of the problems, but it does
resolve the problem of Migron," the prime minister stated.
The High Court of Justice last summer ordered the outpost to be removed by the end of March 2012.
Following the evacuation order, Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court last week
allowed Palestinian claiming ownership to withdraw their civil suit on
the matter. It ordered the Palestinians
to pay compensation fees of NIS 7,000 to the Migron settlers and NIS 12,000 to the state toward court costs.
Council of Jewish Communities of Judea chairman Dani Dayan addressed the
proposal on Sunday, saying, "We share the desire to resolve the issue of
Migron in an agreed-upon and peaceful way."
"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."
"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."Tovah Lazaroff contributed to this report
