Equality under the law, Bagatz style

by Lurker

2006:
  • Regavim appeal to Bagatz: Tell the government to enforce its own demolition orders against illegal Arab buildings in Mizrat el-Kabilya.

  • Government response: We have the right to decide our own priorities for when to do things.

  • Bagatz decision: Sounds good to us.
2009:
  • Peace Now appeal to Bagatz: Tell the government to enforce its own demolition orders against illegal Jewish buildings in Haresha and Hayovel.

  • Government response: We have the right to decide our own priorities for when to do things.

  • Bagatz decision: No, the law is the law: You must get started on destroying the Jewish buildings right now.
2009/2010:
  • Regavim appeal to Bagatz: So then tell the government to also get started on destroying the illegal Arab buildings in Mizrat el-Kabilya now.

  • Government response: Our top priority is to forcibly prevent Jews from building; we don't care very much about illegal Arab building.

  • Bagatz decision: Sounds good to us.

Wow, I read the ending rulings on Arutz Sheva earlier this week and commented how I wondered how the rulings would have been if the parties were reversed. I guess I know now, not that I'm surprised.

How can they look at themselves in the mirror in the morning?
