Huge Win for Judea and Samaria

According to the coalition agreement between Prime Minister-designate Benjamin Netanyahu and Religious Zionism Chairman Bezalel Smotrich that was published Monday morning, the appointment of the head of the Civil Administration in Judea and Samaria will involve politicians – after 55 years during which only the IDF chief of staff made this appointment. Likewise, politicians will take part in appointing the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT). That part of the agreement means representatives of the “settlement” enterprise in Judea and Samaria such as Bezalel Smotrich.

It’s a huge win for Judea and Samaria, more important than Itamar Ben Gvir taking over the ministry of national security. The deal neutralizes the main enemy of Jewish prosperity in Judea and Samaria and the biggest drive behind the Palestinian Authority’s encroachment into Area C.

This agreement will have a dramatic impact on reality in Judea and Samaria, and lead to the expansion of communities as well as the legalization of existing communities, complete with their connection to electricity and water. In the coming months we feel confident we can look forward to these advancements coming to fruition for residents in Judea and Samaria who have been suffering too long. Next step: SOVEREIGNTY!
