Come August, Harel does not want to think about losing the home and the community that he has worked for more than a decade to build. “We’ve worked so hard this past year to get the government to postpone the court’s decision. Every week I’ve visited the Knesset to try and ensure that Migron would continue.”

Migron residents feel that the battle is not only with the government and the courts but also with the press, both in Israel and abroad. Many feel they have been portrayed unfairly in the media.

“At the end of the day, I do my grocery shopping with Palestinians, I live alongside of them, and I never have any problems. No one wants a fight here,” says Weiss. “But that’s not what you usually read about us in the news.”

“Sometimes reporters come with pre-conceived notions about our community and it’s difficult to change that. I’ve found that my words have been altered completely in some news pieces and that’s also frustrating.

“I have only one message to the world. I want to live in Migron so that I can raise my kids in this wonderful community. This is my home and I should have every right to do so.” says Deitch.
