Beit El Prepares to Fight Demolition
Arutz Sheva ^ | 12/6/12 | Maayana Miskin

Hundreds of families have moved to Beit El’s Ulpana neighborhood, local council head Moshe Rosenbaum told Arutz Sheva. “They are sleeping there, in order to prevent [demolition] with their bodies, in order to say that there is no way it will happen,” he said.

He preferred not to specify the “red lines” that protesters will not cross. Earlier in the day MK Yaakov “Ketzaleh” Katz said demonstrators will not harm soldiers, but will give “everything they can” to prevent the planned forcible eviction.

Protesters are not comforted by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s promise to build 10 new homes in Beit El for each home that will be destroyed, Rosenbaum said. While preparations for the destruction are underway, “I don’t know of any real move to start fulfilling the promise,” he reported. “I don’t believe he wants to build.”

The sense that there is no real intention to build is increasing frustration and tension among those who oppose the demolition, he warned.

Deputy Legal Advisor to Government Mike Balas said Tuesday that Netanyahu’s promise to build is unfeasible. Beit El does not have enough land approved for Israeli construction to allow for 300 homes to be built, he argued.

The Ulpana neighborhood houses 30 families. It was built on land bought from a Palestinian Authority Arab.

A second PA man filed suit with the help of the far-left group Peace Now claiming the land in question was actually his, making the sale void. State prosecutors agreed to demolish the neighborhood in response to the man’s claims.

Residents say the plaintiff has no proof of his claims. ...

There was the bit about the High Court ruling that he didn't have to prove his claims, only make them, in order to get a demolition order. But maybe it makes more sense without that, which isn't saying much.

Since the Leftist Yids want Israel to ultimately be Judenrein I suggest making them work for it to the very end.

Unfortunately, the High Court’s ruling would not apply to itself, just to land in Judah and Samaria that was not part of the National Jewish Fund prior to 1948, which are lands that Baron Rothschild purchased during his lifetime and posthumously bequested to the State of Israel, some of it in present-day Jordan, Lebanon and Syria. Other than those lands, any land in Judah and Samaria was deemed by the Court “private Arab land,” even without proof, and even without a specific owner, no Doctrine of Laches or other equitable way to extinguish it.
