Even the soldiers are dancing in the streets of Hebron!

In a petition to the Supreme Court to allow right wing Jews to tour Palestinian areas of Hebron, Itamar Ben Gvir and Baruch Marzel yesterday pulled out an interesting argument.

They were arguing that it should be allowed just like Palestinians and left wingers are allowed by the courts to tour the Jewish areas. they argued about human rights. They argued the "Hebron Agreement" specifically allows for free access of those areas to Jews.

The most interesting argument is when Itamar Ben Gvir said that facts on the ground have changed and clearly things have calmed down and are less hostile, and therefore they should be allowed in as their visit would not really be provocative considering the relative calm atmosphere. His proof of tensions calming was a reference to the recent video of the IDF soldiers dancing through the streets of Hebron.
