First Things First: Will Ben-Gvir’s Initiative Be Realized?

Otzma Yehudit leader and the next national security minister, MK Itamar Ben-Gvir, plans to advance measures to expropriate land for developing infrastructure, as well as to allot hundreds of thousands of shekels to various unrecognized Judea and Samaria communities that have so far lacked official status. The plan depends in part on having the necessary sign-off from the various other agencies outside his ministry.

The plan details that the cabinet will pass a motion within 60 days of Netanyahu becoming prime minister. The motion would grant the necessary approval for 60 unauthorized communities in Judea and Samaria. The government would also advance legislation to amend the law in a way that would allow those communities to connect to the national electricity grid and allot yearly funding for building and maintaining various infrastructure, including water and sewage systems, roads, electricity pylons, and roads. The government will also create a special budget to bolster security there.

Ben-Gvir’s initiative is a huge step in the right direction but we’re not there yet. What we know has rightfully always belonged to Israel holds the promise of being made official in the coming months. When it does happen there should be NO turning back. Next step: SOVEREIGNTY!
