EU officials visit Samaria

A high-ranking EU official visited Samaria this week. The official, Dr. Fiorello Provera, the Vice Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the European Parliament, was accompanied by Samaria Regional Council Chairman Gershon Mesika, Minister of Information and Diaspora Affairs Yuli Edelstein and Shomron Liaison Director David HaIvri.

Let's go to the videotape.

Here's more about the segment you just saw:
The visiting EU official was able to see first-hand the central urban region, often called the “narrow hip” of Israel, and view the strategic importance of Judea and Samaria.

Council spokesmen said that Provera “did not conceal his surprise from the view …and his appreciation for what he saw the visit.”

Provera said, “I arrived in Samaria and observed the security situation for the first time, and this is an important viewpoint,“ he said. No I understand better the size of the country.”

Mesika told him, “Everything we saw earlier [today], such as the importance of a Jewish presence for the security of the existence of Israel,. is true, but the true reason we are here is that this is our inheritance and birthright. A Jewish presence in Samaria is the achievement of the vision of the Prophets. and it will be fulfilled whether or not people try to stop it.”

He called on the European Union to assist Israel “in this historic process.”http://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gif

Mesika also discovered that Provera is a Bible, who nodded his head in approval of several comments by the regional chairman.
This is the fourth coup in the last year for the Shomron (Samaria) Regional Council - they have previously had visits from a group of European parliamentarians, and from a group of American congressmen, and sent a delegation to Europe.
