It is time to recall the fundamental Zionist principle that the Land of Israel is our land; true peace can only come through Israeli sovereignty in Judea and Samaria, declare Women in Green’s Sovereignty Movement.

“A Palestinian state between the Mediterranean Sea and the Jordan River endangers the State of Israel,” announced leaders from Women in Green’s Sovereignty Movement, an Israeli political advocacy group that is protesting US President Donald Trump’s recently published “peace plan” for Israel and the Palestinian Authority.

These leaders expressed shock at the “weak memory” of those that would plan such a “deathtrap to the State of Israel.”

“For all those who have forgotten the fundamental principles of Zionism, … recall that the Land of Israel is our land, and the only way to lead to true peace is to apply Israeli sovereignty over Judea and Samaria.

“An Israeli concession to the Zionist historical principle that this land belongs to the people of Israel alone, will lead to further concessions, as has been proven in the past. Israel is once again asked to continue to pay in the currency of territory for insignificant signatures from the Arab side on pieces of paper,” declared the Sovereignty Movement. Representatives of the movement added that any country in the world that wanted to survive would refuse to give up gains achieved in “a war that was forced on it.”

“Israel will not be able to exist in a reality where an Arab terror state is established in its heart, a state that will lead to the Hamas takeover of the territory, the massive immigration of millions of Arab refugees to that country that will arise out of nowhere and thus the Jewish demographic majority will be lost between the sea and the Jordan. In addition such a [Palestinian] state would be a security threat … to Ben Gurion Airport, which would be shut down when Arab missiles are launched towards the center of Israel, making Iron Domes an integral part of the entire of the country.”

The major problem is the Israeli right’s failure to advance a policy of sovereignty over Judea and Samaria, which leads to a vacuum in which irresponsible political plans are initiated by the American administration, the Israeli left and European countries.

We turn directly to the ministers and the Knesset, to members of the Likud and Bayit Yehudi: “This is the time of your test. This is the moment when you have to lead the path of sovereignty, sovereignty that you advocate and favor, and thus stop the dangerous proposal that is emerging from the White House.”

Women for Israel’s Tomorrow, popularly known as Women in Green, was founded in Israel in 1993 as a grassroots movement of women and men, young and old, secular and religious, all bound together by a shared love and concern for the Land of Israel.
