Anger on the right following the rejection of sovereignty: “Sold us”


The Judea and Samaria leadership is furious at the postponement of the application of sovereignty, and they are not alone;

Tonight, in a joint statement, Trump, Netanyahu and Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed al-Nahian announced a normalization agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates.

As part of the terms of the agreement, it was agreed that Israel would postpone the application of sovereignty, which provokes public outrage among large sections of the right.

The head of the Beit El Shai Alon council said in response: “Make a round of the settlers. Our future lies in Judea and Samaria and in the courageous decisions our leaders will make. Not in the agreements that are signed today and tomorrow are not worth the paper they were written about. They sold us.”

Yossi Dagan, head of the Samaria Regional Council: “If Benjamin Netanyahu sells his sovereignty in exchange for a piece of paper from a country that has never threatened Israel – it is a scam. This is not a plan of the century, it is a scam of the century. Elected 3 times in the last year on the basis of a platform of sovereignty, this is the only thing he has faced in the face of the left’s argument that he is unworthy because of his situation. “And I beg him to make it clear in his voice that this is not true, that this is a spin and he is not relinquishing sovereignty because the public in the State of Israel has chosen him for it.” He added, “There is a limit to cynicism. With all due respect to Grad Kushnir’s intrigue in Washington, our prime minister is Netanyahu. I call on Netanyahu to make it clear that this is not true.

The security movement also responded: “We welcome the normalization of relations with the United Arab Emirates. This is an important step in expanding Israel’s international relations. However, the normalization of relations have to Include security interests, including – Israel’s sovereignty over Judea and Samaria and the Jordan Valley.

B’Tselem says that the organization “welcomes any (real) peace agreement signed with each and every state, no vessel holds a blessing more than peace,” adding that “applying sovereignty over Judea and Samaria will also promote peace, and we call for its implementation.”

MK Sharan Hashakel of the Likud tweeted on her Twitter account: “Congratulations to Prime Minister Netanyahu and President Trump on the achievement of warming relations,” she added, “however, it is forbidden to pierce the ‘Iron Wall’ and give up the pursuit of sovereignty. Facing the challenges of the Middle East allows us to build new bridges between us and the Arab world. ”

MK Naftali Bennett tweeted on Twitter: “I welcome the agreement that will give an official stamp to the good relations that exist with the United Arab Emirates, and thank President Trump for his consistent action on behalf of the State of Israel. Contribute to the region and it is good that relations between the two countries are no longer hostages of Palestinian refusal, but it is unfortunate that Netanyahu missed a once-in-a-hundred-year opportunity to apply Israeli sovereignty over the Jordan Valley, Ma’ale Adumim, Beit El and other Israeli settlements. I mustered the courage to apply sovereignty to even an inch of the Land of Israel, but sovereignty over the territories of our homeland is yet to come, from elsewhere. ”

The chairmen of the Israel Lobby, MK Haim Katz, chairman of the Likud Center, and MK Bezalel Smutritz, chairman of the National Union, called: “We call on Prime Minister Netanyahu not to give up the application of sovereignty in Judea and Samaria. The lobby has recently finished signing A huge majority of Knesset members and ministers on the principles of the lobby, led by the demand for the application of sovereignty without the establishment of a Palestinian state and without any withdrawal from Israeli terrorists. Prime Minister, you have a mandate from the public and the Knesset to apply sovereignty, do not give it up in any way. ”

Chairman of the National Union MK Bezalel Smutrich tweeted on his Twitter account:

“” A tremendous achievement “:
* Waiving a historic opportunity to apply sovereignty.
* The revival of the two-state discourse of the left after years of the right removing it from the chapter (listen to Trump and the Emirates).
* And all for signing a “peace agreement” with a country that has never been with us in the war…
Classic Bibi. Not right and not credible. ”
