The Knesset's Ministerial Committee for Legislation is expected to approve on Sunday a law canceling the expulsion from northern Samaria communities destroyed as part of the 2005 Disengagement from Gaza.
The law, proposed by Coalition Chairman David Bitan (Likud) and MK Shuli Moalem-Refaeli (Jewish Home) and supported by Samaria Regional Council Head Yossi Dagan, aims to allow Jews freedom of movement in the areas of northern Samaria evacuated in 2005.
Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked (Jewish Home) said she intends to pass the law. A few weeks ago, Bitan confirmed Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu had given the proposal his approval.
In the explanatory notes to the bill, it says, "The purpose of the [Disengagement] plan was to lead to a better political, economic, demographic and security situation. Yet today it is clear to all that the Disengagement not only failed to achieve this goal, but in fact caused tremendous damage to the State of Israel in these areas. Despite the expulsion of the residents from northern Samaria, there was no change in the area in terms of the status of the land and the military presence there."
Moalem-Refaeli said, "The expulsion from northern Samaria was a security crime and a crime against the citizens who were expelled from their homes. This is a mistake which can be corrected. In order to rebuild these towns, we first must allow Jews to walk freely in the areas where the communities of Homesh, Sa-Nur, Ganim and Kadim once stood."

Netanyahu delays vote on law allowing return to northern Samaria
Bibi is a serious obstacle so frequently its a real drag.
He makes nice speeches at the UN, which they ignore. So let him become ambassador to the UN, and leave the PM business to someone with more moxy.
Yes. He can make speeches. The current Israeli ambassador at UN seems capable too? So maybe send Bibi to teach public speaking at Beersheba high school?
And English. His English is the next best thing to Abba Eban’s.
Agree with that also. Let him teach English at Beersheba high school too
He’s a talented man. I’m sure he’ll be a big hit with the students.
Yvette could teach Russian.
