We're the Government. We're here to help.

Do you remember the Compensation and Evacuation Act? The one where we got the Gush Katif people out and compensated them for property lost?

Well, except we didn't.

The Inspector-General's report on the subject is out.
It's not written by settlers. It's a government paper.

It says, among other things:

"The Act does not allow for proper compensation of the evacuees."

But even if it did, the majority of people have not received their cash yet.

According to the government, only 40% received the entire sum they deserve so far - and 10% didn't receive the sum at all.

Wasn't eminent domain about taking your property, but at least PAYING you for it?
