Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Monday reiterated his opposition to the so-called Outpost Law aimed at normalizing the status of Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria.
The bill, proposed by Welfare and Social Services Minister Zevulun Orlev, would forbid demolitions and evictions in Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria that have stood for four years and have at least 20 families.
Under the proposed law courts would be directed, if plaintiffs can prove their claims to disputed land with normal proof (i.e., deeds), to order monetary compensation or alternative grants of land.
Netanyahu previously ordered the Outpost Law killed in committee, but it has recently made a comeback among legislators seeking a solution for several threatened Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria.
At the Likud faction meeting on Monday MKs Miri Regev, Tzipi Hotovely and Danny Danon insisted Netanyahu clarify his position, prompting him to answer, "I'm against a legislative solution - it interferes with reaching an agreement."
