There are 88 illegally built houses in Silwan. The municipality offers to raze 22 while giving legal permits for the other 66. They haven't offered yet to build new houses for the displaced families (which Jewish illegal outposts expect as a matter of course). If the municipality comes up with the cost of resettling the displaced people in the same area, I will advise the Silwan people to accept it. Silwan will gain a nice park in the neighborhood and all will be happy. Unfortunately, the municipality is run by a diplomatically tone-deaf businessman.
