Wednesday evening, January 17, 2018 in Petach Tikva, Israel, another greatly successful Sovereignty Conference was held, under the leadership of the amazing Women in Green duo, Nadia Matar and Yehudit Katsover. Videos featuring Governor Mike Huckabee and Geulah Cohen followed the inspiring words of Nadia and Yehudit. Hananel Durani, head of the YESHA Council and the Kedumim Council, was the first to be interviewed by Yoni Kempinsky, who served as moderator. Éran Bar Tal, economic editor of Yisrael HaYom followed, stressing the economic benefits of Sovereignty. Deputy Knesset Speaker MK Betsalel Smotrich was the final speaker. All the speakers supported Sovereignty for Judea and Samaria with Smotrich unwilling to divide up Areas A, B, and C, and against giving the Arabs voting rights. He stated, “The Arabs should not win through “democracy” what they couldn’t win through war.”
The Sovereignty Conferences will continue, and hopefully the dream will become reality very quickly. Helen Freedman was proud to be there, underscoring AFSI’s support for Ribonut, which has been a pillar of AFSI’s belief from the beginning.
