Dear List, amv"sh

There you have it. See below response from the IDF."The IDF will continue to enforce the law in Judea and Samaria, as it did in this instance. "

Let's agree to disagree.  The IDF is enforcing an immoral and illegal law in Judea and Samaria. Testimony clearly contradicts that this was done in a moral or legal fashion. That is why our protest is so important to prevent future demolitions!

Subject: IDF RESPONDS TO DESTRUCTION OF THE FEDERMAN HOME
Letter sent from IDF spokesman in response to query below about the IDF destruction of Federman home:
 

In Response to Query

 

Yesterday a number of structures, which were built illegally and without required permits, were dismantled near Kiryat Arba.  The removal of these buildings took place under supervision and after the issuance of legal orders.  As part of these processes, the inhabitants of these illegal buildings were given the opportunity to put forth their claims and peacefully leave the structures. 

 

However, they chose not to do so and instead continued to break the law.  While a petition was submitted to the Supreme Court of Israel regarding some of the buildings, they were rejected.

 

Removal of the buildings was done only after property and other belongings were removed from them in an organized manner.  Evacuation of the buildings was done at night to reduce the chance of a crowd grathering and unnecessary friction.

 

The IDF will continue to enforce the law in Judea and Samaria, as it did in this instance.
