Netanyahu in election speech pledges to “apply sovereignty to Judea and Samaria”

With two days to go to Israel’s general election, Likud leader PM Binyamin Netanyahu said he would apply sovereignty to Judea and Samaria: “I don’t differentiate between the large [settlement] blocs and isolated communities.” He also promised to bring all the right-wing parties into his next government. Challenged to a TV debate with his main rival Blue-White’s Benny Gantz, Netanyahu said: “I don’t debate with half a prime minister,” in reference to the rotation deal between Gantz and his party’s number two, Yair Lapid. Gantz shot back: “He’s afraid to confront me.”

    Lets hope for Israel Beitenu and Ozmah Jehudi to enter the knesset while the lefties get only a few votes. Israel needs strength to defend herself and no traitors who sell land for so called peace.
    If Israel kept the sinai it could have build tlv2 there while maintaining good agricultural soil which is now gone in favour of concrete.
    Israel can not feed itself as it destroyed its agricultural production for real estate production.
    Golan has good agricultural properties but the munes and rocks are to be cleared.
    Look at pardes hana in the 60s and now and you see what happened to the soil.

    Caroline Glick has been calling for this for years. The land belongs to Israel in accordance with UN Charter. Jordan’s occupation was never legal, and now liberated if goes against all Judaic principals, Laws of War, and self defence to give any up.
