Segment 3 of April 4, 2012. The beautiful community of Migron sits upon the rolling hills of the Benyamin region of Samaria and this week’s third segment is focused on how this community has become a hot topic across Israel. Yishai presents three main reasons to why it is such an important issue and to reinforce why those reasons are important. Aviela Deitch, a Migron resident and a spokesperson for the community, who resides in the community with her husband and six children, joins Yishai. Deitch talks about the reasons that they decided to move to Migron and also the experience of an expulsion, as it was seen first-hand. Deitch talks about the history of the community of Migron, how it is not usable farmland and how the land was formerly state land owned by the the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, which became Israeli property following the Six Day War in 1967. Deitch continues by talking about how the community was established with not only the blessing of the Israeli government but also with full support including utilities and mobile homes. Issues with the lawsuit brought forth by Peace Now, a leftist Israeli organization, that catapulted Migron into the limelight are discussed as are the some of the dubious legal proceedings that have happened between the citizens of Migron and the Israeli Supreme Court. The segment ends with Yishai talking about the potential expulsion of the residents of Migron set to take place this summer and how it will affect the Deitch family and others that live in this community.Download MP3
