The "Women in Green" movement and the Forum for Sovereignty are pleased to announce the publication of "SOVEREIGNTY" - a new journal, which is publishing its premiere issue for this Shabbat Hayei Sarah.
As the newspapers report on negotiations between Israel and the Palestinian Authority, and the outrageous linkage between the Iranian nuclear project and the future of Judea and Samaria - the Women in Green movement is launching the journal "Sovereignty".
One hundred thousand copies of the Hebrew "Sovereignty" journal will be distributed throughout Israel. It has been translated to English (see link below) and will be distributed among shapers of public opinion and statesmen in Israel and abroad.
With the publication of this journal we aspire to take another step toward conceptual and practical implementation of the Zionist alternative to the failed two-state vision that the Left has been presenting for decades.
In recent years, in addition to activities in the field for the safeguarding of the Land of Israel, we have begun to promote the vision of applying Israeli sovereignty over Judea and Samaria. And while the Right labors and does attain important, but limited achievements - such as one more caravan or one more acre of land - the Palestinian Authority determines facts on the ground and has great influence on international and Israeli consciousness. Step by step, a Palestinian state de facto is being established within the territory of the Land of Israel financed by anti-Israeli international funds, and Israel does not respond with any clear ideological, political or practical answer.
As part of the struggle to make Israel's case, which is a battle waged simultaneously with the practical battle to hold on to the land, we are launching "Sovereignty" as a direct outgrowth of the large conferences that we held, attended by ministers, members of Knesset, public figures and thousands of supporters, where we raised the call for the application of Israeli sovereignty over Judea and Samaria.
In the pages of "Sovereignty" we will carry on an ideological and practical discussion, centering on the basic and essential questions regarding the political vision of the Israeli Right. We will raise many questions relating to sovereignty and its implementation which, despite their importance, must not obscure the primary and basic principle: we must apply Israeli sovereignty over Judea and Samaria for one simple reason - this is our Land. This guiding principle takes precedence over all other explanations and justifications, true as they may be, and is the basis for them.
In the premiere issue of "Sovereignty", there are articles and interviews with Minister Uri Ariel, Geula Cohen, Deputy Minister Ze'ev Elkin, Rabbi Gideon Perl, member of Levy Commission Alan Baker, manager of Arutz 7 Rebbetzin Shulamit Melamed, Attorney Betzalel Smotritch from Regavim, Israel Harel and Yossi Dagan, Deputy Head of the Council of Samaria.
The journal is available in Hebrew and in English, on the Women in Green Internet site at http://www.womeningreen.org/
