Jews Fight for the Land, Will Not Give in to Terrorism

Three new candidates running on the Likud list for Knesset in Israel’s national elections this November joined Samaria Regional Council head Yossi Dagan last night in vowing to “fight for the Land of Israel” at Joseph’s Tomb. But as the delegation and other worshipers were praying, IDF soldiers outside the tomb were also fighting — to protect those inside.

This is the first time Israeli worshipers traveled to the tomb since the ceasefire following Operation Breaking Dawn. During the visit, Arabs rioted and opened fire on the IDF troops escorting the visitors.

Dagan called the visit a “sharp and clear statement” that Israelis will continue to visit Joseph’s Tomb and “not give in to attempts to stop the Jewish presence” there.

The fortitude and leadership of Yossi Dagan and his colleagues is what will ensure that the right to live in the Land of Israel will remain in Jewish hands. As it should be.
