Bad Policy Guidelines

Cabinet Communique

(Communicated by the Cabinet Secretariat)

At the weekly Cabinet meeting today (Sunday), 28 October 2007:

...5. The Cabinet discussed the issue of temporary residency permits for residents of Judea and Samaria who have resided in eastern Jerusalem for a prolonged period without a proper permit and decided as follows:

Interior Minister Meir Shetrit will provide for the issuing of Israel residency permits - in accordance with the 1952 Entry into Israel Law - to residents of Judea and Samaria who are in Israel illegally, who request such a permit on the basis of the claim that the center of their lives is in eastern Jerusalem, in areas to which the jurisdiction, law and administration of the State of Israel were applied in June 1967 even though they do not appear in the 1967 census as residents of eastern Jerusalem.

What, no obligatory security check?
