The rabbi also asked minister Yishai to relay the following message to Netanyahu: "Although I respect him, he must under no circumstance destroy these communities."
"He agreed that this matter must be solved – not by razing and eviction of existing communities. I am optimistic, everyone is willing and able (to solve the matter). I am convinced the government will find a way."
