    Sason Report To PM Sharon On Unauthorized Outposts (March 10, 2005) http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/jsource/Peace/Outpostrep.html "The State of Israel is a democratic state. This is what the Declaration of Independence and the Basic Laws teach us. This is the glue that sticks all its citizens together, allows them to live together in one political entity. Democracy and the rule of law are two inseparables. One cannot exist without the other. The reality drawn up in this opinion shows that all of these deeds seriously endanger the principal of the rule of law. Even though the outposts are built in the Judea, Samaria and Gaza territories and not in Israel, the settlers and the authorities who take part in their establishment are Israeli. A continuing, bold, institutionalized law violation undermined the rule of law. When law violations become standard behavior it tends to spread into other areas. But any government policy must obey the law. All officials and politicians are governed by law. The actions described are not a matter of political view. It is a matter of law enforcement, a question of the rule of law. In order to maintain the democratic regime of Israel, urgent measures must be taken to change the reality I have described. It can no longer be accepted. It must be reformed, and I believe you have the power to do so." - Talya Sason, Adv. 10 Mar 2005
