A Comment of the Law of Regulation

Coming in:

A bill legalizing West Bank outposts passed a preliminary reading Wednesday

I just want to point out that the impression I have is that the Arab "landowners" are of the type of which the 2012 Levy Report spoke of (see this discussion).

That is, they were awarded property from the "state lands" of Palestine by an illegal occupier, i.e., Jordan.  They did not purchase it. Nor did they pay taxes.

At the time, I suggested Netanyahu declare a re-register of all such lands and that all those that were not developed, not built on, not planted, should revert to their former legal status. A campaign was launched but Netanyahu rebuffed any policy initiative.
