What does it take for Israel to rapidly evacuate a West Bank outpost that is deemed illegal? Why, if it's Palestinians who have set up camp there. Indeed, it appears that the Israeli government ignored a court injunction in their haste to ensure that the Palestinian outpost of Baab al Shams (built in the controversial "E-1" area near Jerusalem) was evacuated. One imagines that the Supreme Court does not look favorably on being ignored in this way.
