Americans For A Safe Israel congratulates Israeli Prime Minister-Designate Benjamin Netanyahu and the entire pro-Zionist bloc on their successful formation of a new government.

Netanyahu phoned President Isaac Herzog on Wednesday evening just 18 minutes before the midnight expiration and proclaimed, “I have succeeded in forming a government.”

The first party to reach a final agreement with the Likud was the Religious Zionist Party. Among the clauses in the agreement with the Religious Zionist Party: Promotion of a significant reform to amend the justice system, appointment of a National Religious Chief Rabbi, amendments to legislation considering the difficulties and loopholes created by the so-called “grandson clause” of the Law of Return, and a new kashrut law.

To date the only party to sign an agreement is Agudat Yisrael. It is expected that today Religious Zionist Party will sign their agreement.

Smotrich and Netanyahu agreed on a government decision, to be approved within 60 days, to regulate the young communities, the regulation of the yeshiva in Homesh by amending the Disengagement Law in northern Samaria and the immediate implementation of the Evyatar plan.

To make daily life easier in Judea and Samaria, it was agreed on the regulation of crossings, the development of roads and infrastructure and a solution to the issue of cell phone reception in Judea and Samaria.

Among the many things we look forward to with this new government:
1) That Israel builds a strong pro-Zionist government that will be able to take appropriate action to stop the alarming number of terror attacks against innocent Jews and others.

2) Stop the disturbing and intensifying trend of the European Union and left-wing NGO’s that align together to ensure that the Arabs takeover 100% of Area C. Israel must clearly communicate its policies to the entities that seek its undoing.

3) The declaration of SOVEREIGNTY over Judea and Samaria. It is only through SOVEREIGNTY that the Jewish residents there will be afforded the security, stability, and peace they rightfully deserve and no longer be treated like the terrorists that they are not.

We trust that the new government, through any means necessary, will not hesitate to enforce Israel’s sovereign and legal rights. Israel must remain the issuing authority by which the country is governed. Without this, Israel will continue to remain threatened by those who seek to eliminate it. Without it, the advancement of the Zionist legacy will die. We are counting on you Prime Minister Netanyahu to restore to Israel the security, safety and sovereignty that it should rightfully have.
