'Amona' 2 in the making?

The government handed out demolition orders today for eighteen buildings in Havat Ma'on , an 'illegal outpost' south of Mt. Hebron. Havat Ma'on is one of twenty-four 'illegal outposts' that Ariel Sharon promised George Bush he would dismantle. It is not, however, one of the six 'illegal outposts' named in the Peace Piece by Piece Now petition that is currently before the High Court of Justice. According to the Jerusalem Post, those six are Ramat Gilad-Givat Hadegel, Givat Assaf, Ma'aleh Rehavam, Mitzpe Lachish, Givat Haroeh (Apirion Hill) and Mitzpe Yitzhar (Givat Yitzhar).

The government is trying to reach an agreement with the revenant leadership to dismantle these twenty-four outposts, all of which were sat up from March 2001 (when Ariel Sharon took office) onwards, and to leave another eighty-one outposts that the government calls 'illegal' in place until Olmert's convergence consolidation realignment surrender and expulsion plan is implemented. While the revenants are interested in talking, they are not interested in the 'compromise.'

Jews have been expelled from Havat Ma'on once before, in 1999. I would be shocked if they are expelled from there again peacefully.
