Netanyahu’s Likud party votes unanimously for sovereignty in Judea and Samaria

December 31, 2017

Netanyahu’s Likud party votes unanimously for sovereignty in Judea and SamariaKnesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein marked the vote as a turning point.

The Likud Central Committee voted in one voice for Israeli sovereignty over all of Judea and Samaria.

By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News

In a victory for the Israeli right, over 1,000 members of the Likud party’s Central Committee called unanimously Sunday evening for its representatives in government to formally annex parts of Judea and Samaria and allow unlimited construction in the Jewish communities.

The resolution reads: “Fifty years after the liberation of Judea and Samaria, and with them Jerusalem, our eternal capital, the Likud Central Committee calls on Likud’s elected leaders to work to allow unhindered construction and to extend Israeli law and sovereignty in all the areas of liberated settlement in Judea and Samaria.”

Not legally binding, but significan.

The draft resolution was put forward by Shevach Stern of the nationalist camp, who reminded the crowd that “this is not a legally binding resolution, but it binds our government morally and politically.”

He also made a point of saying that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu – who was not present – had already said 15 years ago that “there will be no Palestinian state west of the Jordan River.” He was referring to the 2002 Likud convention, when a resolution was passed against the establishment of a Palestinian state in Judea and Samaria.

Although conspicuous by his absence, Netanyahu was mentioned positively by members of his cabinet, including Ze’ev Elkin, Minister of Jerusalem Affairs and Environmental Protection. He noted that the meeting was not taking place against the prime minister’s will, insisting that Netanyahu has been outspoken about his views that all of Israel belongs to the Jewish people.

‘[B]This is our best chance’

At the event, which lasted for over an hour, almost every speaker mentioned US President Donald Trump and his recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. Some merely thanked him, while others, such as Speaker of the Knesset Yuli Edelstein, marked it as a potential jumping-off point. He declared, “Now it’s up to us… Will it be only Jerusalem, or also Judea, Samaria, the Jordan Valley, etc.?”

Benny Kashriel, mayor of Maale Adumim, a city just east of the capital, stated firmly that “this is our best chance, with America behind us, and other countries growing closer. We have to bring the vote over sovereignty…to the Knesset.”

The need to turn words into action was made by several committee members. “What happens after the vote?” asked Central Committee member Ze’ev Ben Yosef. “Will we really build everywhere? We must convince everyone we can, so this will actually be carried out.”

Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Tzipi Hotovely received an especially fervent round of applause as she held up a rubber bracelet she received that evening with the words “The Likud is for Sovereignty” in Hebrew. “This blue bracelet is the correction for the orange bracelet of Gush Katif [against the disengagement from the Gaza Strip in 2005]. There will be no more evacuations,” she stated. “Tonight we are making history.”

‘Sovereignty is our right

Wake up Israel.

The whole country is yours, do not let any others have one square inch of your country.

I assume you've learned that lesson by now. Be strong, any weakness only lessens the strength of your country. You've listened enough to others to know that most of them do not have your best interests at heart.

More importantly from a legal standpoint, the land was restored to Israel by the San Remo Conference and codified in the Treaty of Sevres, the British Mandate, the League of Nations and the UN.

Hallelujay! I have advocated this action for a long time in this very place.

The Treaty of San Remo, the League of Nations' "Mandate for Palestine," gave all of Palestine to the Jews to build their homeland in their ancient biblical land.

There never existed a Palestine as an independent state; Palestine was an administrative district of the Ottoman Empire, and subsequently mandated to become an independent Jewish state.

The Mandatory was to facilitate immigration of Jews and the settling of the land by Jews; that mandate has been betrayed by the traditionally anti-semitic British bureaucracy and by Churchill who gave away 78% of the territory mandated to become the Jewish homeland to the Hashemite Emir Abdullah hoping that 'gesture' would curry favor with Arab nations.

Never mind, that it was not his to give - in the private sector he would have gone to jail for this fraud!!

But now sovereignty is within Israel's grasp! Better late than never.

Sometimes History takes its time to bring things to fruition.

Let's hope this time Israel will succeed, and when she does, let's not forget the crucial and at times heroic role that P.M. Netanyahu played in all of this, having to endure the outrages aimed at him by Hussein Obama, the most obnoxious, uncivilized, despicable president the U.S. ever had.

Go for your well-deserved sovereignty, Israel, go! And may Hashem bless.

.. Israel has no natural defensible borders between Jerusalem and the joedan river.. the abbas will soon be gone from power.. fatah will loose out to hamas as what happened in gaza.. Samaria and Judea are essential territories of Israel..

Israel gave up 70% of their territory (sinai) after the 1967 war to their arab neighbor egypt as a gesture of goodwill and peace to their arab neighbors.. and gaza.. exactly for what..?

land for peace does not work.. there is plenty of land for the palestines in jordan .. and the sinai..,

Did France passed a law after liberating Alsace Lorraine from German occupation?

Never! Why? No need because it is French land, liberated French land. Yehouda and Shomron are similarly liberated Israeli land and all Israeli laws apply.

Those who object can leave. Time to cleanse the PA out of the land of Israel to end Islamic terror.

Judea, I look it up in my old Webster and see Jewish so having been
able to rely on Webster all my life I see no reason for anyone to disregard
Webster Dictionary or say it ain't so............

.The history is factually that
of a Jewish Nation in land given by The Almighty to Abraham and what
is good enough for Abraham is good enough for the whole World.

I am sure Webster read the Scriptures for accuracy.............William

Does anyone know the details - does this apply to all of Judea and Samaria (I'm guessing not yet), or is it just for Area C, or just for the area west of the security barrier, the Seam Zone that contains most of the major blocs? I'm guessing the latter.
