They are building illegally and expanding the buildings to accommodate their families.
What is the solution? The Ministry of Interior wants to establish a “master plan” to expand homes and at the same time keep from causing more damage to archaeologically valuable things.
I think I have a better idea. These families keep wanting to live in Jerusalem, but by and large the Haredi do not even serve in the IDF. They, by and large, depend on the government for stipends because their men are constantly in Yeshivot and do not work. This means they are, for all intents and purposes, on government welfare.It is time to stop coddling the Ultra-Orthodox communities.
As long as they live in Israel, they should have to live according to the rules set by the government for every other Israeli. Tell these people to stop their illegal construction which is hurting Jerusalem and if they do not stop, arrest them!
If they need room to live, the government would do well to remember that the municipal borders of Ma’ale Adummim were set in 1983 at 35 square kilometers. To this day, only 3.7 kilometers have been built upon. Here’s a hint...
Start building in Ma’ale Adummim again, and the rest of the world be damned. It’s Israeli land, do with it what you should! Relocate the Haredi from the Jewish Quarter in Jerusalem to Ma’ale Adummim, Ariel or Gush Etzion, or one of dozens of other towns in Judea/Samaria.
Here’s a hint for the Haredi, why not get some Zionist bones in your bodies and settle the LAND Hashem gave to you? Jerusalem is already Jewish. And you must remember that you are not all priests. Get out of Jerusalem and DO something for Israel! Yes, the Torah is important but when G-d gave the Land of Canaan to the Hebrews, they certainly had to do more than keep their noses buried in Torah scrolls. They had to fight for that land, and it is no different today. That remains true even if the fight is merely political. Claim the land G-d gave to Israel and LIVE in it.
