Forced Evacuation of Migron Completed

.

September 2nd – Following the High Court of Justice’s ruling from last week, the residents of the community of Migron, in the Benyamin region, were forcibly removed from their homes this morning. Large police forces arrived at the community early this morning, knocking on doors and serving the residents a court order to evacuate their homes. A few families offered passive resistance, but most of the fifty families left on their own accord.

Most of the children were evacuated last night by the residents to shield them from possible trauma. Most of the families were evacuated to the nearby Ofrah guest house, waiting for the completion of their new community on Givat Hayekev.

The community’s legal status was in dispute for the past six years, as Arabs claimed they own the lands on which the community resides. The residents, on their part, have recently purchased most of the individual plots specifically under debate. Despite that, the High Court ruled in favour of the Arab plaintiffs.

A few youth, who are not residents of the community, came to Migron to offer resistance, but were overpowered by the police forces.

This morning, hours before their forced evacuation, the residents of Migron planted tree saplings, explaining that they were planting the trees now in preparation for their future return to Migron, when the trees will be full grown.

Eitay Harel, one of the founders of Migron stated today: “This is a sad day. I want to promise myself, the residents of Migron, our feeble Prime Minister and our brethren from Peace Now who are engaged in destruction – I wish none of them to suffer the pain that we are experiencing now, the pain of bereavement, but we sang the Tikvah, the national anthem. Our hearts are pierced, but we will return. We believe in all our hearts that this story will end with the establishment of two communities. We are ashamed that there are Jews who work to betray the Land of Israel. I am sure the truth will be revealed, we own the land and there is no one who contests this point. They have produced mere claims for the sake of destruction. We are tearful and enraged, but we will channel these energies to arise from the dust and resettle the land.”

  1. When the elections are here, we too will evict Bibi from his house.

    We will also praise him if he is obedient and offers no resistance.

  2. Amen, brother Harel…

  3. Shameful. What a travesty of justice. I'm disgusted.

  4. Read an essay by Caroline Glick on her blog & you'll see what a disgusting travesty of justice this is, the ''rule of law'' in Israel is a bad joke.

    Today my eyes are filled with tears. Yet, we shall overcome… one day.

    The last synagogue in Egypt is gone, there will be no Rosh Hashana service in in Alexandria anymore. 2000 years of Jewish life in Egypt has come to an end.

    At the same time Jews evict Jews from Erez Israel. May HaShem prevent them from experiencing his full wrath for this chillul HaShem.

    And let us not forget that the last temple was destroyed because of the hatred between the Jews.

    It is said that Rabbi Akiva laughed when he saw the foxes strolling through the ruins of the second temple, because he already saw the future joy when the house of prayer for all nations would be reestablished.

    I sure do not have the greatness of Akiva and so I can not laugh today over the ruins of Migron, but there will be a day, when not only the Temple is rebuilt but Migron and all of the Jewish homeland too.

    Shavua tov.

  6. The High Court is out of control AND MUST BE STOPED! They ARE NOT their underminding of DEMOCRACY and FREEDOM must END NOW!

  7. Your words will be fulfilled Eitay Harel. Because these words are not yours but the Creator, the God of Israel who gave the land in the hands of His chosen people. God will remove the corrupt judges.

  8. Revelation 2:9 I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.

    Revelation 3:9 Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan,which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.

  9. Liad Bar-el says:

    What can I say? Bibi has strengthened my trust in HaShem by his lack of moral leadership. It is not that I am grateful to Bibi for this but rather trusting in HaShem is the only way to go.
    Just remember, Bibi, everybody is making their own YouTube video of their life and HaShem will be playing your life time video back to you when it is your time to face Him.
