It is a matter of black letter Israeli law that the land cannot just be confiscated. At best the land can be rented by the IDF. And any restrictions constitute the legal concept of loss of use. So what can the town do? Sue for all the back rent and for future rent. Sue for the economic losses of not being able to fully use the land. Sue for exemplary and punitive damages. Sue not only the Israeli government, but each and every one of the settler organizations that is impairing and impeding the town's economic life. Ask for joint and several liability. Don't launch one lawsuit. Launch hundreds and oppose joining them. Make the settlers defend each and every one in court. And ask the US to help pursue the lawsuit. USAID may just accommodate since they too have a financial interest. Get a contingency fee lawyer. Ask for billions NIS. The owners of Homesh sued and the Israeli AG is worried. He has no defense to offer in court.
