Thousands of Judea and Samaria residents woke up on Sunday morning only to discover that central junctions throughout Judea and Samaria were decorated with PLO flags. The flags, hung on highway light poles in a manner befitting the visit of a foreign dignitary, generated hundreds of angry calls to municipal councils in the area from residents who were certain this had been the doing of the gang from Ramallah.
In a startling twist, residents quickly learned that Israel’s NGO Regavim was responsible for this secret overnight operation as part of their wakeup-call campaign “Terror State Around the Corner.”
AFSI applauds Regavim’s latest campaign. Regavim has worked diligently for years to wake up the administration and the people to the Arab land grabs. We hope this latest use of shocking street theater will get people to pay attention to this very dangerous situation.
See AFSI’s suggested further reading in Arutz Sheva on this subject:
“Likud presses to cancel PA land theft discussion.” Regavim responds to report that Likud thwarted initiative to raise illegal PA construction issue for Knesset discussion.”
‘Illegal Arab town must not be allowed inside Shilo bloc.’ Minister calls for crackdown on illegal construction, as work progresses on new Arab town. ‘We ignore too much illegal Arab construction.’
AFSI has seen evidence of the Arab stealth plan on all its Chizuk missions for the past ten years, at least. AFSI has worked with Women In Green to stop the bleeding. Unfortunately, many in the Israeli public, and the administration, have ignored the hard evidence and now we are reaching the critical pivotal point. The alarm has sounded. It is past due time to WAKE UP!!!!
Wake-up call! They’re devouring our Land is Sara Haetzni-Cohen’s Artuz Sheva OpEd and a very important read.
The focus of this article is Area C – the territory under Israeli civil and security control (since the Oslo Accords). Approximately sixty percent of the territory of Judea and Samaria falls under this definition, including all of the Jewish communities, roads, IDF bases, firing ranges and more. Most of the territory is not settled or farmed. But this territory only seems to be under Israeli control. What is happening there is actually persistent, sophisticated, and creeping Arab annexation. Most Israelis are not interested at all in what is happening “over there”. Even most of the Jews living in Judea and Samaria are not interested. It is not terror that explodes and interrupts the flow of life; it is not a boycott that threatens the basis of the economy, it is done quietly and persistently, and very soon it will be too late. The nooses around the Jewish communities and the arteries of Jewish life are tightening.
Iran announced yesterday that it increased its uranium enrichment beyond the limit set forth in the 2015 JCPOA nuclear agreement between Tehran and world powers.
In response to Iran’s announcement, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called on world leaders to take action. “It is a very, very dangerous step,” Israel’s prime minister said. “I’m asking you not to provoke, but out of joint knowledge of history and what happens when aggressive totalitarian regimes can cross the threshold toward things that are very dangerous to us all. Take the steps that you promised. Enact the sanctions.”
In an unprecedented decision on Monday, the Jerusalem District Court ruled that the Palestinian Authority is liable for civil damages for a series of terror attacks carried out during the Second Intifada (2000-2005). The decision was obtained by Shurat Hadin on behalf of eight victims’ families. As the case moves forward to its next stage, the PA could be responsible for compensating the families with a maximum of $1 billion in damages.
Nitsana Darshan-Leitner, President of Shurat Hadin, told the court that if they won the lawsuit, it would be difficult to collect the compensation from the Arafat estate, and as a result she requested a lien on the property.
Is Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu affirming his commitment to the Jewish residents of the South or is this another empty promise?
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu chaired a security cabinet meeting at IDF Gaza Division HQ this morning vowing to “do what is necessary” to end the intolerable situation for Israelis living in the Gaza periphery. @IsraeliPM
Netanyahu also spoke about his commitment to working to achieve more for the Ethiopian community, which has seen violent protests for the last three days in response to the killing of an Ethiopian teen by an off-duty policeman.
Arutz Sheva reports former Mayor of Jerusalem MK Nir Barkat stating, “Unfortunately, I heard that the NIF [New Israel Fund] poured out its resources to fan the flames. I’ve spoken with Ethiopian friends and they said they received assistance from the NIF,”

An i24News exclusive reports that the Israel Air Force launched targeted strikes in Egypt’s Sinai on Gaza-bound arms shipments – weapons and missiles that were bound for militant groups in the Gaza Strip. @i24News_En
Israel is reportedly leading a large intelligence operation in Sinai to prevent the arrival of weapons and money to Hamas and Islamic Jihad in Gaza through smuggling tunnels.
This effort is part of an ongoing operation to prevent the infiltration of terrorists into Israel and the supply of weapons to terror organizations out to destroy her.
Monday morning President Benjamin Netanyahu said that “Iran today announced that it was breaching its explicit commitment when it crossed the 300 kilogram mark in uranium enrichment, and Iran is moving ahead with a significant step in the production of nuclear weapons.”

According to the former chairman of the subcommittee on Judea and Samaria, MK Moti Yogev (Jewish Home), the Palestinian Authority takeover of Area C represents a real political emergency: “The facts are being determined on the ground and if we reach the negotiating table, there will be nothing more to discuss.”
A report released by Regavim reveals that over 28,000 new illegal structures have been established on Israeli-controlled territory in Judea and Samaria over the past decade.
Israel’s Jewish communities in the south have had enough after suffering close to 100 fires last week started by incendiary balloons launched from the Gaza Strip. Israel’s Channel 12 reports that residents are outraged by the ongoing attacks and discouraged by the lack of reaction and support on the part of the Israeli government.
In response, Israeli regional council representatives are looking into the legal requirements for issuing an independent appeal to the United Nations against Hamas.

American Ambassador to Israel David Friedman spoke Wednesday morning to Efi Trigger on Army Radio – Galey Tzahal. Friedman said the Bahrain summit was “heading in the right direction,” despite the PA’s boycott of the gathering.
“I stand behind my words to the NYT 100 percent; it has been American policy and expectation for the last 20-30 years; everybody knows there’s no scenario when Israel will leave the entire Judea and Samaria; as long as I’ve been conceptualizing this issue.”
