Passers-by in the city of Kiryat Gat noticed today (Tuesday) a campaign that the municipality believes in, with a map of the Land of Israel that omits entire parts of the country.
The outdoor campaign published throughout the city shows a map of the Land of Israel made up of people, but without the Golan Heights, Judea and Samaria and even parts of the city of Jerusalem.
The “If You Will” movement wrote to the mayor of Kiryat Gat, Aviram Dahari, on its Facebook account:
“The history of our people is intertwined with the Jordan Valley, Judea, Samaria and Jerusalem,” they added. “All the stories of the Bible and Jewish culture are intertwined in these places. Beginning with the stories of the fathers of the nation, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. From Joshua, Judges and Kings of Israel and Judah. ”
According to them, “This erasure of the cradle of Israel’s ancient culture on which all of Israel’s right is based, also erases the right to exist of Kiryat Gat, so make no mistake. With all due respect, neither you as mayor nor anyone has the right to erase the cultural assets of The State of Israel is literally on our map. “
Following the publication, Mayor Dahari responded: “I would like to thank you for drawing our attention to the issue of the map of the Land of Israel that appeared on billboards throughout the city. Indeed, the Land of Israel, the land of our ancestors, our ancestors dreamed of, includes all the parts you mentioned in your letter.
He added, “By God and in his salvation we will repair the signs accordingly. By the way, in the revised map it will also be possible to better identify the fact that Kiryat Gat is indeed the new center of Israel. I sincerely hope that the amended map will not create difficulties for the next landings in the UAE of the Elal plane in the name of the city of Kiryat Gat. “
Kiryat Gat City Council member Yigal Weinberger immediately asked the mayor to remove the signs. He said, “Kiryat Gat is the heart of the country, but the heart of every Jew is in Jerusalem. I hope that whoever is responsible for this will repair the sign immediately. Kiryat Gat was and will remain a Zionist city, loves Israel and will always stand for the Jewish right in the Land of Israel.”
The chairman of the opposition in Kiryat Gat and a member of the city council on behalf of the Likud, Kfir Suissa, also immediately addressed the publication of the signs to Mayor Dahari: “Correct the distortion. Signs that were placed throughout the city and aimed at branding the city of Kiryat Gat, presented a distorted map that does not include extensive and important parts such as Judea and Samaria, the Jordan Valley, Jerusalem and the Golan Heights. For decades, the best of this people fought for the land of our ancestors. Jewish blood is shed like water for the sake of the Greater Land of Israel. ”
He said, “As residents of the city and certainly as elected officials who represent our dear city, as distinct members of the Land of Israel, I and members of the Yuval Avisidris faction protest and call on the mayor to immediately remove this disgrace from the billboards and re-present them on the real map of Israel.” In all parts of the country. “
