The Sovereignty Movement, initiated and founded by Women in Green, is setting out these days with renewed impetus for the sovereignty campaign. This is occurring in parallel with the renewed discussion in Israeli society about the future of Judea and Samaria, marking the fiftieth anniversary of the victory in the Six Day War.
In the coming days, the Sovereignty Movement will appeal to the public, via various media outlets and billboard signs, to join the movement that has been leading, in recent years, the ideological shift aimed at the political, moral, security and economic solution of the application of Israel’s sovereignty over Judea and Samaria.
“The heads of Women in Green, Yehudit Katsover and Nadia Matar, explain the urgency of the campaign, especially in the current period, saying: “President Donald Trump’s visit in Israel in conjunction with the fifty year anniversary of the liberation of Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and the Golan Heights, have increased more than ever, the public’s awareness of the importance of Judea and Samaria to the future of the State of Israel and the historical-biblical connection between the People of Israel and these tracts of land. In parallel, certain elements among the Left, backed by significant economic resources and representing mostly foreign interests, have begun to exert pressure in the media and with public relations efforts, on political agents in Israel and the United States in an attempt to promote a political process whose objective is the division of the Land and the establishment of a terror state in Israel’s heartland”.
“At this time our role, as lovers of the Land of Israel and the settlement enterprise, is to prevent the reawakened efforts of the Left to weaken the nationalist leadership in Israel. We regard with great admiration those ministers and members of Knesset, who number not a few, who promote, each according to his ability and in his own sphere of influence, the vision of sovereignty and application of Israeli law over Judea and Samaria. But their activities face aggressive propaganda by elements that have not yet been disillusioned by the Oslo disaster and similar failed steps. Our role is to stand strong by these politicians’ side and to provide them with public backing.
This is the reason that we are embarking on a renewed campaign, calling on the general public to join the movement to exert the necessary public, grass-roots pressure in order to move the steering wheel of the ship of the State of Israel away from the icebergs of Oslo. Only with such public pressure can the process of sovereignty, which we began a few years ago, arrive to its realization and completion”.
The heads of the movement also wish to express their support for the efforts of the heads of local authorities in Judea and Samaria who are acting toward the promotion and renewal of building in these areas, but emphasize that the larger, comprehensive answer, which also includes the solution to the matter of building, is the application and realization of Israeli sovereignty in Judea and Samaria. “Building is not enough, there must be a solution that is deep, true, ideological and Zionist. There must be sovereignty!”.
Katsover and Matar invite the general public to get the latest information about the various activities and details of the campaign at the Sovereignty Internet Site (ribonut.co.il), which was established in recent months and presents articles, reports, updates and more, in Hebrew and English, in the spirit of promoting the vision of sovereignty.
