Announced: 80% of Migron Land Purchased by Jewish Residents

The heads of the Migron community will claim on August 1 before Israel's High Court for Justice that they do not have to move.

The Arutz 7 Hebrew site (at this moment) is announcing that 80% of the land in dispute has now been bought from the Arab owners for several hundreds of thousands of dollars from an American-Jewish philanthropist.



MKs Elkin & Eldad demand that the government inform HCJ that there's no need to move.  (link in Hebrew)

More details here.

Of course, someone will ask: if they claimed the land wasn't owned, from whom did they buy it?

Is the Israel Supreme Court going to order the land claim to be adjudicated in a lower court?

Or will it contravene justice and force the residents of Migron to move without their land claim having been heard first?

This move makes the original evacuation order pretty much moot. This not a case where the Israel Supreme Court can usurp the jurisdiction of a trial court.

Will it put itself above the law? Stay tuned.
