Plans for Sovereignty Over the Jordan Valley

MK Danny Danon is drafting a plan to apply Israeli sovereignty over the Jordan Valley, a move which would become the first move by Israel to extend its laws over parts of Judea and Samaria since the expansion of Jerusalem’s boundaries shortly after the Six Day War in 1967.

Though not included in the new Netanyahu government, Danon will instead focus on drafting right-wing legislation – including a plan to push for full sovereignty over the Jordan Valley.

The move challenges the approach favored by some coalition members, who prefer a staggered approach, starting with measures creating de facto Israeli sovereignty over parts of Judea and Samaria. By contrast, Danon’s plan would explicitly extend Israeli sovereignty over the strategic area on Israel’s eastern border in a single step.

The bill is being drafted with the support of the Sovereignty Movement and Jordan Valley Regional Council chairman David Elhayani.

This is the kind of news we are happy to report on. The fulfillment of the wishes of Israel’s voters and the execution of Israel taking back what is rightfully hers.
