Halt Threatened Yeshiva Destruction
Petition Background (Preamble):
According to a hotly contested order imposed by the Israel Defense Force’s Civil Administration, the 11-year-old building in the town of Yitzhar is not properly authorized, despite amply documented government authorization and funding for its construction.
Yeshiva staff, students and supporters, shocked by the May 9th demolition order, have mobilized to prevent the destruction, which many claim to be due to a policy adopted to punish area residents and students for conflicts with the IDF and for alleged acts of retribution against nearby Arab towns.
We furthermore call on the Minister of Defense, Ehud Barack to authorize, without any further delay, the legitimacy of the Ode Yosef Chai Yeshiva in the town of Yitzhar.
