Right-wingers light candles in former settlement

Around a thousand right wing activists lit Hannukah candles on Monday in the former West Bank settlement of Homesh, which was evacuated in August 2005 as part of disengagement. Although the area is now a closed military zone, the activists were allowed in for the candle lighting ceremony. Boaz Haetzni, who helped organize the event, said this was a small step toward what they hoped would be an eventual return to the settlement.
