Member of the Knesset Zeev Elkin: It's time to apply sovereignty in Judea & Samaria
Chairman of the Coalition, MK Ze'ev Elkin, is calling for a change in the political and public discourse in Israel, for us to stop thinking what Israel has given and what the Palestinians receive, and instead start discussing the application of Israeli sovereignty over Judea Samaria.
The Chairman of the Coalition and one of the heads of the lobby for Eretz Yisrael in the Knesset, MK Ze'ev Elkin, states that now is the time to change the discourse regarding the future of Judea and Samaria, and that instead of talking about giving we should start planning a move which will apply sovereignty over Judea and Samaria.
"For the past twenty years we have been discussing what we should give and why. The time has come for a completely different discussion. It is our right and it is our land. It is our right to apply sovereignty over it", says Elkin in his prerecorded greeting to the participants of the Second Conference for the Application of Israeli Sovereignty over Judea and Samaria. The Conference is scheduled to be held this coming Thursday in Hebron.
To those who fear the international response to this act of sovereignty, MK Elkin sends a clear reminder that the world opposed the Israeli annexation of the Golan Heights and Jerusalem, and that "now is the time to do so in Judea and Samaria. It is time to end this 'Salami System', where the Palestinians take and take as we cut away and give them slice by slice. Anyone who contributes to this move to change the public discourse will be praised", address by MK Elkin.
MK Elkin's statement will be presented in full via video projection at the opening of the Second Conference for the Application of Israeli Sovereignty over Judea and Samaria, taking place, B"H, this coming Thursday, 22nd of Tamuz (12/7/12) at the Machpela Visitors Center in the City of the Patriarchs, Hebron.
