Muffti has been waiting patiently for Caroline Glick or someone of her ilk to explain the Israeli side of things in this story but it doesn’t seem to be forthcoming. But what does seem to be forthcoming is the destruction of solar panels used to provide energy to a few hundred in so-called Area C of the West Bank. Granted, the panels were deemed to be illegal constructions and illegal constructions are subject to demolition. On the other hand, somehow one feels that such rote application of the law in this manner is heavy handed and needlessly muddies the already sludge-like waters. The solar panels, according to multiple sources, help provide power for a dairy farm. They were installed with European money.
The stories from the middle east never come without many sides and relevant considerations, and Muffti is eager to hear a cogent defense of destroying the panels. But if you think that the best solution here is to not let the panels stay and find an ex-post facto solution to their illegality, this link provides one of many ways to write to the Israeli authorities.
