What’s Jenin Got to Do with Sovereignty?

The scenes from Jenin and northern Samaria recall the scenes from Gaza, enhancing our understanding that without sovereignty, we will continue to spill our blood in the war against terrorism.

As long as the Israeli government continues the vacillation and indecision of its predecessors, failing to enforce clear, resolute and responsible sovereignty over the territory, the earth will continue to seethe and rage, while underneath, plans to remove us from here will continue to be devised, while above it weapons will continue to be stockpiled in terrorist warehouses, endangering all of our lives.

That is why targeted operations aimed at clearing out terror nests followed by a quick exit from Jenin, Shechem the Gaza Strip or any other place in Judea and Samaria will never suffice.

Sovereignty means responsibility, capitulation leads to lawlessness. The terror is calling us with thousands of pealing bells – to take ownership and apply sovereignty and governance over the Land of Israel.
