Posted on 01/09/2012 1:18:49 PM PST by Eleutheria5
The Knesset on Tuesday will hold a special session on illegal construction - and the abject failure of authorities to ensure order - in eastern Jerusalem.
The hearing comes due to recent admissions by government officials that code and law enforcement in Jerusalem's eastern neighborhoods is virtually non-existent because the authorities, including police, are afraid of entering the area and applying Israeli sovereignty there.
Lawyer Amir Fischer told Arutz Sheva he filed a petition demanding a government response due to the grim state of affairs in eastern Jerusalem, saying,"For fifteen years they have not enforced the law."
Fischer added that although his petition focused on the villages of A'akab and Atarot, the reality is pervasive throughout the Jerusalem's eastern neighborhoods.
The official response to Fischer's petition said, the "security situation in these neighborhoods is complex, largely influenced by the proximity between these areas to Judea and Samaria. Security forces in the sector routinely encounter violence and demonstrations, throwing rocks, throwing petrol bombs, blocking roads, and laying of pipe bombs, and more."
The state further argued "the responsibility for enforcing the planning and building laws rests with the Jerusalem municipality and that, due to the security situation, inspectors did not enter these areas for fifteen years. Entrance to the village requires military escorts and requires justification for using such resources."

Well put, and I agree with you 100%. Personally, I feel he is a traitor and along with a number of others, like Livni, should join Olmert in a jail cell.
Land for Peace can NEVER work. It was forbidden by HaShem to give away or sell any portion of The Land of Israel. So, it was a faulty plan to begin with.
Israel is unique and to be set apart from all other nations of the world. The Jewish people are to remain separate and immerse themselves in Torah- as HaShem commanded.
From its beginning, it was to be governed by Torah- by HaShem’s Law and no other. HaShem created it to be that way and to stay that way- Forever. When her leaders part from the law of Torah, Israel and the world suffers.
When other nations come against Israel, the world will suffer- as it is suffering now. You can’t go against HaShem’s will.

If you're going to tear down illegal construction built by Jews, you tear down illegal construction built by Arabs.
Indeed, it is.
But that would be equality, and for the sake of piece there must be dhimmitude.
