Mystical Paths: Eli Slated for Destruction
Akiva from Mystical paths writes:
R. Nati called me this morning from his home in Yishuv Eli, the Jewish town of Eli in the 'West Bank' named for and the physical home location of the biblical priest Eli in the book of Samuel I.
Police are going door to door right now, informing the residents that the Givat Tet neighborhood of Eli, 21 large single family homes built on Jewish land, bought and purchased by the residents, will be evacuated with force (the warning actually says that) on Monday, their owners and families force-ably removed (right before Passover), and bulldozed to rubble the following Monday. As well as this neighborhood, the Jewish town across the valley, Givat Ro-eh, will be evacuated and destroyed on the same schedule (about 30 small family caravans I think).
Any other resident of the town is warned that if they do not confine themselves to their homes during this event, they face arrest and a very long jail term (yes the warning specifically says that as well). Note this from an on-the-spot call, we're working on verification now.
Ribono Shel Olam! Master of the Universe! Once again Jews will be thrown out of their homes, homes they built, homes they paid for, for nothing, and with nothing but the clothes on their backs.
