Beit Horon refuses to host Hebron refuseniks' alternative ceremony

The municipality of Beit Horon, initially the site in which an ultra right wing organization was planning to conduct a ceremony to hand out medals to soldiers who refused to participate in the evacuation of two families from Hebron earlier this month, said today that it would not allow the ceremony to take place in its community center, Israel Radio reported. The World Headquarters for Saving the Nation and the Land intended to hand out the alternative military decorations on Sunday, in a ceremony that was scheduled to coincide with the official military ceremony awarding citations to soldiers who fought in the Second Lebanon War, it was reported on Wednesday.
