The Women in Green movement is initiating an extensive media and public campaign calling upon the Israeli government to respond to the Palestinian vote in the UN with the immediate application of Israeli sovereignty over Judea and Samaria

 

"What's important is not what the Nations say, but what the Jews do!" David Ben Gurion

             Following the expected vote in the United Nations on upgrading the status of the Palestinian Authority to that of non-member observer state, the Women in Green movement calls upon the Israeli government to respond with the immediate application of Israeli sovereignty over all Judea and Samaria.

             The movement is supporting this request with a massive media and public campaign headlined by the declaration that the application of sovereignty over Judea and Samaria is a necessary step. Nothing can be more authentic, Zionist, justified, and Jewish than such a move. The campaign incorporates a short film from the second conference for the application of sovereignty that was held this summer in Hebron, with the main statements by Minister Daniel Hershkowitz, MKs Elkin, Hotoveley, Regev, and Ariel, and the public figures: Geulah Cohen, Caroline Glick, Adv. Dafna Netanyahu, Adv. Itzik Bam, head of the Samaria Regional Council Gershon Mesika, Yoram Ettinger, and Adv. Howard Grief. The heads of the movement, Yehudit Katsover and Nadia Matar, add to these statements a reminder from David Ben-Gurion's famous declaration: "What's important is not what the Nations say, but what the Jews do!"

             Katsover and Matar reject the fear of a hostile international reaction to the act of applying sovereignty, as they recall the international opposition that accompanied the application of Israeli sovereignty over greater Jerusalem and over the Golan Heights. They maintain that, just as the international opposition passed then, so will it pass now.

             The two call upon activists to exert direct pressure on the Prime Minister's Office with the demand to take steps to apply sovereignty as a response to the Palestinian move. "The historical sites of the Jewish people are in danger, and we must systematically exert pressure on the Prime Minister to act in response to the UN resolution with the application of Israeli sovereignty over Judea and Samaria. contact information for the Prime Minister's Office: telephone: 972-2-6705518 fax: 972-2-5605000 or 972-2-5664838"

             As to the results of the Palestinian move, Katsover and Matar quote the statement in the Jerusalem Postby the expert on international law Professor Louis Rene Beres that this would be illegal: "Creating a Palestinian state by launching an end-run around international law in the General Assembly would be illegitimate on its face. More importantly, however, it would also be destabilizing, and potentially catastrophic, for the entire region of states." (Jerusalem Post November 26th,2012)

             "Two weeks ago we saw that Israel has advanced defensive means, but all of our sophisticated technology will be of no avail if we will not internalize that this is our land. The war over the Land of Israel is a moral and justified one. We will win it. The command of the generations beats within us, and the voice of the L-rd, in our ears: 'I will give this land to your offspring ... and to your offspring after you for an everlasting possession.'"

 The extensive media and public campaign for the application of Israeli sovereignty over Judea and Samaria is costly.

It includes front page ads in the newspapers read by Israeli politicians and foreign diplomats and ad campaigns on internet sites.

Attached is the front page ad printed in the newspapers today, in English and Hebrew.
