The Knesset struck down by a 50-59 vote a declaration to legalize the Homesh Yeshiva along with some 70 West Bank outposts. The declaration, which measures the Knesset’s political will, is symbolic, and has no immediate legislative value. It had asked that Prime Minister Naftali Bennett “decisively prevent the evacuation of the Homesh Yeshiva, authorize it and to allow its students to study and live there.” This particular vote comes amid an emotional plea by the family of terror victim Yehuda Dimentman, 25, for the government to authorize the yeshiva. For over 15 years the seminary has existed illegally at the site of the former Homesh settlement, which was one of four in northern Samaria settlements destroyed in 2005 as part of the Disengagement plan.
