The Israeli Supreme Court hearing on the route of the separation wall in the Cremisan Valley, originally set on July 26th, 2014 was postponed to August 4th, 2014. The Society of St. Yves, representing the Salesian Sisters, condemns the planned route of the separation wall in the Cremisan Valley. “We want to build bridges, not walls,” said Sister Fides, the directress at Cremisan. Since 1960, the Salesian Sisters have been developing their institution to serve underprivileged children of the neighboring Palestinian villages. Children who attend the convent’s afternoon classes and summer camps would otherwise spend their free time on the streets because their families cannot afford to send them elsewhere. Thus, the nuns’ presence and their institution is a blessing for the local population.

Yesterday, the Supreme Court of Israel asked the State Attorney to justify until 10/4/2014 why not to alter the route in Cremisan and why they insist to construct on the suggest route. Further the court asks for a statement why it shouldn’t cancel the decision of last year which was given by Special Appeals Committee in Tel Aviv. This would mean that the wall could be constructed also for example on the route the Council of Peace and Security suggested. Further, the court asked the Ministry of Defense and the Commander of the West Bank why it should not cancel the seizure orders issued in Cremisan. Until the case is decided all construction has to be stopped. “The case is not over, until a final ruling is given. The court’s decision is an indication that it is not inclined to adopt the State’s position. We definitely have new hope – the answer of the court is a good sign” explains Advocate Zvi Avni, lawyer of St. Yves representing the Salesian Convent and School. The Supreme Court set a new hearing for 30/7/2014 to discuss the requested answer of the State and the responses to it of the people of Cremisan.
