Israel’s decision to evict all 53 Jewish families from Evyatar should send a clear signal to the European Union (EU) that its days of financing and facilitating the building of unauthorized Arab structures in Area C are over.
Area C comprises about 60% of the Judea and Samaria and has been under Israel’s full security and administrative control since the 1995 Oslo Accords were signed.
Prime Minister Naftali Bennett’s declaration in January 2020 – made before he was elected Israel’s Prime Minister – should now set off alarm bells in the EU:
“Our objective is that within a short amount of time, and we will work for it, we will apply [Israeli] sovereignty to all of Area C, not just the settlements, not just this bloc or another… We are embarking on a real and immediate battle for the future of the land of Israel and the future of Area C”.
AFSI prays Prime Minister Bennett will stay true to his word and that Israel will see the full application of Sovereignty in Judea and Samaria.
