Destructive to Israel From Within: Ramat Migron Demolished, Residents Threatened

A sizable force of Israel Police officers and the IDF Civil Administration raided the hilltop village of Ramat Migron in the Binyamin region last night, destroying the houses of three families, the synagogue that had been built there.

The residents claimed that the forces broke into the houses and confiscated the cell phones of the families without any reason or court order. One resident demanded that his cell phone be returned was threatened with arrest and warned: “One wrong move on your part and you will find yourself thrown on the floor and arrested.” The residents also testified that boys who live on the hill were beaten by the police and one of them was injured in the face and needed medical treatment in the field.

MK Itamar Ben Gvir criticized the government for what he called selective enforcement. “The extreme left-wing government of [Defense Minister Benny] Gantz, [Prime Minister Yair] Lapid and [Interior Minister Ayelet] Shaked continues to act in a racist and discriminatory way toward Jewish settlements.” Ben Gvir added that this “proves how much the government is disconnected and destructive to the state from within.”

The recently dissolved coalition and now the interim government’s obsession with destroying Jewish homes and traumatizing Jewish lives continues. This only increases the Zionist resolve of residents to build upon the Zionist dream. While the government is hurting its own, the PA’s illegal land grabs with the goal of building a state on Jewish owned land is still allowed to go unchecked.
