Mainstreaming Jewish sovereignty over Judea and SamariaJewish sovereignty over all of Judea and Samaria is becoming a mainstream position.
To put it simply, while just several years ago annexing Judea and Samaria seemed liked an implausible, unrealistic, or even taboo suggestion, today the concept of establishing Jewish sovereignty over all of the land from the River to the Sea has grown into an entire movement.Read it all.
While perhaps not yet embraced by all in this country, and certainly not by many of those in the international community, there is no doubt that the notion of sovereignty has become intellectually mainstreamed.
According to Women in Green co-chairwoman Nadia Matar, who along with fellow chairwoman Yehudit Katsover organized the event, the large turnout proves that “after 20 years of our minds being poisoned by ‘Oslo’ and land giveaways, we are now at the beginning of a new stage in the history of Judea and Samaria, where people are willing to openly say, ‘this is ours’ and we want to apply sovereignty over it.”
In addition, Matar says that over time, the fact that “more and more politicians are willing to speak at the event and are not afraid to tell the truth” shows that while it might not be easy, we are confident that it [annexing Judea and Samaria] is possible.”
Featured speakers at the conference included Diaspora Affairs Minister Yuli Edelstein, coalition chairman MK Ze’ev Elkin, Knesset House Committee chairman MK Yariv Levin, MK Prof. Aryeh Eldad, Arab affairs expert Dr. Mordechai Kedar, international law expert and Levy Committee member Alan Baker and Jerusalem Post columnist Caroline Glick, among others.
