Samaria Head: Leave Us Alone, United Nations

In a statement addressing today's special session of the UN security council on the issue of the Jewish building in Judea and Samaria, Shomron [Samaria] regional council head Geshon Mesika said: "Our rights to live and build in Yehuda [Judea] and Shomron are historical and biblical, The Torah states that this land was promised to our fathers Avraham, Yitzchak, Yaakov and Yosef HaTzadik. History is acting out the words of the prophets, who foresaw our return to the land."

"We did not come here as result of a UN resolution and we will not leave because of one. The special session of UN security council today is anti-Semitic in nature and totally irrelevant to us," he stated.

"The Jewish towns under my jurisdiction in the Shomron have no vacant homes or apartments and all have long waiting lists of young families eager to move in. We will not be intimidated by councils and their special sessions, we are here to stay and will continue to exercise our God given right to grow and develop our towns."
