This will have followed their acceptance of the government’s proposal that they leave peacefully in return for the makeshift buildings they erected there over the past six weeks, while a military unit remains, along with the promise that pending the defense ministry’s legal review, a number of them will be allowed to return to set up a yeshiva there. I must admit, I was originally surprised with how meekly the settlers accepted the government’s proposal.
