    I think this Jewish community should be saved, but I also feel that if Democracy deems them to be illegal then one must consider cleansing them in the interest of avoiding further conflict and more Islamic terror. It is a bad precedent to demolish Jewish homes every time the enemies of Israel call for their destruction. Today it's Uplana, but tomorrow it will be Tel Aviv. We must weigh how much appeasement of our enemies will serve us. Every dunam of Israel is considered Arab and Muslim by many people in the world and the moment you agree one Dunam is Arab they insist the one next to it, is as well. The ministers are afraid that this will lead to more terror and want to appease the supporters of terrorist in Europe. I understand this.
