Abandoned by the Gov’t, Residents Can’t Wait – Action Needed!

Hundreds of residents of Judea and Samaria and the Jordan Valley protested outside the home of Defense Minister Benny Gantz in Rosh Ha’ayin on Thursday afternoon. They demanded that the government authorize an Operation Protective Edge II in order to stop the current wave of Palestinian terrorism in its tracks.

Binyamin Regional Council head Yisrael Gantz addressed the crowd saying, “We don’t have equal rights as citizens and now the enemy is rearing its head because the government lets it do so. The Prime Minister talks about two states, about a Palestinian state. The Defense Minister himself has revived the Palestinian Authority of unblessed memory. This is a terrorist and dictatorial organization that harms Arabs and shoots at Jews.”

As the residents of Judea and Samaria prepare for the coming Sukkot holiday, it sometimes seems as if they are still temporary dwellers in their own land. It’s high time that the government exercises its sovereign right to the land and authorizes a true sense of permanence by unfreezing housing development in this region.
