Letter to Obama: Stop Pressuring Israel

A group of residents from Judea and Samaria went on Wednesday to the American Consulate in Jerusalem and asked officials there to deliver a letter to U.S. President Barack Obama.

In the letter, written in the name of all Jews living in Judea and Samaria, the authors demand that Obama stop pressuring Israel to surrender its land. They also remind Obama that "the Land of Israel belongs to the people of Israel as was promised to their forefathers". In the words of the residents "anyone who tries to take Israel’s land will only bring trouble upon the world".
