The High Court issued an immediate stop work order Thursday against builders of a mosque at Jelazoun near Beit El.There's also another mosque mentioned near Yitzhar, with the challenge being to know who are the people behind its illegal construction.
The order was issued in response to a motion filed by Regavim, an NGO that specializes in fighting illegal Arab construction. The motion was originally filed as what Regavim calls a “mirror motion” following the state's destruction of a synagogue at El Matan. A “mirror motion” is one that is filed against an Arab building after a nearby Jewish building is razed or slated for demolition, forcing the state to take similar action against the Arab building or to try and explain why it only enforces the law against Jews.
Regavim is doing the right thing to oppose the construction of mosques like that one on this side of the globe. It's been a problem here long before it became a problem in America.
