Just Right for Adar – Peace Now Gets a Taste of Purim

This is sweet. The government approved the construction of 505 housing units in Shilo, and retroactively approved 190 units that were already built there, so now they are all “legal”. (What determines whether a yishuv is legal or not is sometimes just a signature. This is what happended here.)

What is so sweet about it is the fact that the government finally approved the construction because of Peace Now. They brought a court case to the Supreme Court in Israel demanding that this building was illegal. The court pressed the government for a decision on its status – and got its answer.

Pretty good timing too – tonight is the beginning of the month of Adar, known for the holiday of Purim, where the enemies of the Jews had their plans turned on their heads.
