When a palatial palace was converted into an architectural salvage store for sale, the Israeli architects of the property were caught in the middle of the transformation.
They were forced to sell the palatial estate in a way that they didn’t know they were doing.
The architect of the Palmyra palace, Dov Weiss, says he had no idea the palace was being sold and that the sale was illegal.
“We didn’t even know the owners,” he said.
And when we explained to them that it was a property that had been confiscated, it was not something that we had considered at all.””
They wanted to buy a piece of history and they wanted to sell it.
And when we explained to them that it was a property that had been confiscated, it was not something that we had considered at all.”
The auction of the palaces former palatial grounds is the only legal sale of the properties property in Israel.
It is an exception to the general rule that the ownership of a property is passed on through a legal sale, which only takes place once a court decision has been made on the sale.
“The owner of the land is not permitted to sell or transfer the property to another person without the permission of the court,” says the Land Administration’s official website.
The land is currently owned by the state, and the government has not decided whether it will continue to own the land, or sell it to a foreign investor.
The State of Israel owns the land.
It does not sell it or transfer it to anyone else.
“This is a case that has gone back to the very beginning, which is that the land was taken by the army without compensation,” Weiss said.
“In the eyes of the law, this is an illegal sale.
The Land Administration has no authority to sell this land.”
Weiss said he hoped that the case would help others understand the nature of legal sales.
“When you think about the situation in Palestine and the way that we deal with the situation on the ground, we should always be looking for ways to ensure that we have justice and protection in a system that is already quite flawed,” he added.
