Classic Zionism in Migron
Op-ed: Residents of hilltop communities are devoted to Zionist ideal of settling the land
Before we go off looking to face new challenges in high-tech development or perform acts of kindness toward victims of natural disasters around the world, we need to notice that there is a lot of work waiting for us right here.
Settlement movement will win
Migron represents a primary motif in the Zionist settlement enterprise. It is one of more than 100 settlements in Judea and Samaria that have still not obtained all the necessary authorizations to be considered bona-fide settlements by the government. In a legal procedure, and with the encouragement of the extreme leftist organization Peace Now, an Arab resident of a nearby village has claimed ownership of some of the lands Migron was built on, even though he has not succeeded in proving that ownership in court.
