Proposed Law: resettling the land

Now this here is finally a serious act and law proposal by a full right wing government.

MK Yuli Edelstein (Likud) and Minister of Settlement Orit Struk have proposed a law that would cancel the Disengagement Law of the Northern Shomron region.

Back in 2005, then prime Minister Ariel Sharon effected the Disengagement form Gaza and shortly after from the Northern Shomron, evacuating the Jewish communities from Gaza and from several communities in Northern Samaria.

Since then there has been a concerted effort to revoke that law, with pressure by lobbyists on the lawmakers sympathetic to the cause. That day might soon arrive. The first hurdle has finally been passed.

This law proposal, which has been approved by the legislative committee to move forward for voting, would make it legal (or it would stop making it illegal) for Jews to go back and resettle those evacuated communities (eg Chomesh, Sa-Nur and others) in Northern Samaria. Even without resettling, it is currently illegal for Jews to even go there, and that would change.

Northern Samaria is one thing but I am not sure we want to take back Gaza as a next step, but maybe giving ourselves the option might be worthwhile.

  1. Just a note that the two big settlement blocs in Gaza were on the two ends of the strip (for obvious strategic reasons), meaning that Israel could theoretically take them back without really entering Gaza. There were only one or two isolated settlements right in the middle of Gaza, again for obvious strategic reasons.
