State Asserts Israel's High Court for Justice Supports "Illegal" Outpost

Serves those judges right.


In a 14-page document, the state argued that it did not plan to demolish the [Amona] outpost at this time, even though it acknowledged that the hilltop community was illegally built...penned by the Defense Ministry’s settlement adviser Eitan Broshi.

...enforcement has to take into current circumstances into consideration, he added. In this case, considerations that stem from the diplomatic process with the Palestinians have to be taken into account...These decisions that are of a sensitive nature should be beyond the court’s jurisdiction, he said.

To bolster his argument, he referred to a High Court decision not to interfere with the 10-month moratorium on new construction in Judea and Samaria that lasted from November 26, 2009, to September 26, 2010. The court refrained from acting because the issue was diplomatic, he said.

This same logic works here as well, Broshi argued. The court understood in that instance that the nation’s diplomatic agenda was at stake and that as result the court should not get involved. It should take the same stance here as well, he said...

That's telling them!
