IDF: Machpela House Legally Bought
Arutz Sheva ^ | 1/4/12 | Gil Ronen

Lawyers for the residents of Beit HaMachpelah in Hevron met Sunday with representatives of the IDF's Civil Administration and discussed the legality of the purchase of the home, which the residents moved into last Wednesday.

The IDF representatives examined the purchase documents and confirmed that the purchase is legal. However, they said that they are awaiting the final approval of the political tier.

The answer is in line with the assessment made Friday by Rabbi of Hevron and Kiryat Arba, Rav Dov Lior. "The question now is whether Defense Minister Ehud Barak will allow the residents to stay there, regardless of whether the purchase was legal," he added.

Minister of Information and Diaspora Yuli Edelstein (Likud) said on Saturday evening that the sale of Beit HaMachpelah was undoubtedly valid. Edelstein made the comments during a visit to the building, where he was the guest of about 70 people who had spent Shabbat at the newly purchased home near the Tomb of the Patriarchs.

Same thing happened with Bet Shalom, which remains closed to the rightul owners to this day. This is wrong even for the Arab who sold the property, who could have been caught and murdered at any time during the transaction.

What does owning property legally mean if Arabs don't want you there. The seller, of course, is subject to the death penalty in both the West Bank and Jordan, as Eleutheria5 points out. Selling property to a Jew is a serious criminal matter, after all. Someone ping me if any US administration comments on this policy of the nation of the Little King with the hot wife. Who has his own problems with palestinians and islamists.
