What’s With New Settlement for Amona Residents?

0

Many Israelis find it hard to believe that PM Bibi Netanyahu may have to renege on his commitment to build the Amona evacuees a new settlement. Minister Uri Ariel of Bayit Yehudi even warned that it might hurt the coalition, stating: “The promises need to be kept and I don’t see how the coalition can continue to operate in a normal format without realizing the commitment to build a new community for the residents of Amona.”

“It is inconceivable that a promise given to families uprooted from their homes won’t be kept,” Yossi Dagan, head of the Shomron Regional Council, told Channel 2. “I expect the prime minister to find a way to keep his promise and not hurt his citizens’ human rights under political pressure.”

Naftali Bennet and Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked said they were certain the agreement would be kept. The Amona residents are determined to make their new home in the so far unauthorized Geulat Tzion outpost near Shiloh and refuse to consider any temporary alternative.
