The owners of five houses in Ulpana neighborhood have agreed to leave voluntarily.
An Israeli government committee approved a compromise agreement with the families of the Ulpana neighborhood under which they would leave voluntarily.
Under the agreement approved Wednesday, the five buildings in the outlying neighborhood in the West Bank settlement of Beit El that were found to be built on privately owned Arab Palestinian land will be moved. Until the move is completed, the 30 families being evacuated will live in mobile homes, starting next week. Israel’s Supreme Court will be asked to allow more time for the buildings to be moved rather than razed.
In addition, 300 new apartments will be built on an evacuated Border Police base that will be annexed to Beit El.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reportedly stressed that the agreement is not a precedent for future evacuations of West Bank outposts.
“At the outset, we set two goals: upholding the law and strengthening the settlement movement. This outline meets both of these,” Netanyahu said in a statement issued from his office.
Benjamin Netanyahu has most likely won a political victory. But what does God of the Bible think about the acts of Jerusalem?
If the Supreme Court of Israel decided that all Jews will have to leave Judea and Samaria, what will Benjamin Netanyahu do?
Shall the Jewish people be guided by so-called International law, or are every Jew called to obey the Word of God?
“and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever; his kingdom will never end.”
Let us pray for Benjamin Netanyahu. That He will submit to the Scriptures, and that Yeshua the Messiah will appear in his life. Amen.
