'A Defeat for Peace Now'
Arutz Sheva ^ | 31/10/12 | Gil Ronen

Nationalist land dealer Moshe Zar hailed the State Attorney's Office (SAO) reply to a High Court motion, in which the SAO said that radical leftist group Peace Now does not represent real-life Arabs when it files motions against Jewish outposts in Judea and Samaria.

The SAO's position comes as a surprise, as the office is generally considered a bastion of radical leftism.

Zar told Arutz Sheva that in its reply, the state used the central argument that the Jewish residents of Judea and Samaria have usually used, namely – that the Peace Now motions are frivolous and that they do not represent any Arabs.

"The State's response to the High Court was that this is a public body that has no relevance to outposts and that they therefore do not have the right to file these motions," he said. "This is a good answer, and if the High Court accepts the argument, it will in effect be taking away Peace Now's right to file motions against outposts in the future.

"They always claim that there are virtual Palestinians who own the land but they do not bring any Palestinian. You cannot bring a nonexistent petitioner. ..."

Mr. Zar also proclaimed that day is day, night is night, the Pope is Catholic, bears crap in woods, and water is wet. Piece Now strenuously objected to all of these assertions, claiming that they are right-wing ploys to deny the rights and even the very existence of the indigenous Palestinian People.
