Netanyahu says Goodbye to Beinisch
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu bade farewell to outgoing Supreme Court President Dorit Beinisch Sunday, in a meeting attended by all of the Supreme Court judges, including the new President, Judge Asher Grunis.
"I wanted to thank you on behalf of the Nation of Israel and the State of Israel," he said, "for your long, courageous and important service, in safeguarding the Supreme Court. You did it wonderfully, in a period that was not simple, under arrows of criticism. That is not easy for anyone but it is especially difficult for judges because they usually lack the platform for responding directly. But I think you stood your ground in a very impressive manner."
Netanyahu added: "I think the independence of the court is built-in and essential. In Israel, the court was, is and will remain independent. All attempts to bring things that harm the independence of the court are destined to fall. I shoved aside every proposal that was meant to hinder or curtail the courts' independence.
Netanyahu also congratulated the new Supreme Court President, Judge Asher Grunis. "You are carrying on a fabulous tradition and legacy – there is no other word but fabulous – which is an essential element in our national existence."
Agreement Reached on Migron
An agreement has been reached in the negotiations between residents of Migron and Minister Benny Begin regarding the planned eviction of residents and demolition of the structures that have been built on the site. Alternative structures will be built at permanent site not far from Migron, and the IDF will "consider positively" leaving existing structures intact.
Arutz Sheva has learned that the agreement will make it possible for residents to peacefully leave the site and avoid confrontation with demolition forces. The agreement is the result of negotiations in which the residents were represented by Attorney Yaakov Weinrot and Binyamin regional authority head Avi Roeh, vis-à-vis the government as represented by Minister Begin.
Roeh sent a letter to Min. Begin Sunday in which he enumerated the agreements reached and expressed support for them, on his own behalf and on behalf of the residents of Migron.
The compromise is based upon a statement by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, according to which alternative structures will be built at a permanent site on state lands, near Migron. The land upon which Migron currently resides will be handed over to the IDF Civil Administration, which will "consider positively" the continued use of structures that were built on plots that were owned by Arabs who left the Land of Israel long ago and can no longer claim them.
As for structures built upon plots that Migron residents claim ownership to – their future will only be decided after the courts decide in the matter.
The alternative site will be in the Yekev (Vineyard) area about two kilometers away from the present site, and the families will only move there after completion of construction work there.
The government will ask the High Court to approve the compromise. Meanwhile, the Civil Administration will tour the Vineyard site to prepare for implementation of the compromise agreement.
