Amona protester feels ‘betrayed’

One protester who had come to Amona to fight off the evacuation says he’s unhappy with the decision, taking his cues from the Bible.

“I feel betrayed by the residents. They decided not to fight but to go against their interests. It’s against the Torah. It’s not the truth,” says the protester who declines to be named.

Another protester overhears and joins in, “There are difficulties in life. The Torah is full of difficulties.”

“The fight isn’t over,” says a spokesman from the nearby settlement of Ofra.

“We’re taking our foot off the gas for a month. If in the next month the state lives up to its promise to build 52 houses and public structures, then the struggle will be crowned a success and Amona will stay on the hill. If the state doesn’t fulfill its promises, we won’t hesitate to renew the fight with more grit and more strength. Amona won’t fall again.”
