HEBRON (Ma’an) -- Israel's supreme court on Monday will consider whether to evacuate settlers from two properties in Hebron's old city, the Hebron Rehabilitation Committee said Sunday.

"An Israeli court is going to reconsider evacuating settlers from Palestinian stores which they occupied," HRC said.

"The stores were shut down by Israel in 2000 and belonged to Abdul Jawad al-Ewiwi and Abdul Razik al-Ewiwi."

HRC is committed to preserving the cultural identity of Hebron's old city, as well as reviving its infrastructure.

Around 800 Jewish settlers live among 30,000 Palestinians in the parts of the ancient city that are under Israeli control.

Israeli restrictions on movement and access, many of them dating back to the Palestinian uprising at the start of the decade, have turned parts of the old city into a ghost town.

Poverty has risen in a city that was traditionally an engine of the Palestinian economy.

See how far they go on this - what's the betting they change their minds when the settlers resist, backed up, of course, by the rest of the settler movement. Who really rules Israel? 400,000 settlers.

This must be a Maan lie, since Israel's media says nothing about this, and besides this is the most Jewish land, that our Patriarch bought: "And Abraham stood up from before his dead, and spake unto the sons of Heth .... (that said) the land is worth four hundred shekels of silver; .... And Abraham hearkened unto Ephron; and Abraham weighed to Ephron the silver" (Gen. 23:3-16)

It's an open and shut case, really. Interesting to see how it plays out.

So true Gabi/Australia! However the rest of israel has been willing captive. israel could never make real concessions because it could not form a majority government without settlers. The reason is because no israeli party would ever allow the Arab-israeli party into a coalition which would have allowed concessions. Prejudice and Racial hatred have allowed this atrocity to continue. If israel really wanted peace it could have happened.
