Shaul Goldstein: I Identify with Tekoa Protesters


The Head of the Regional Council of Gush Etzion, Shaul Goldstein, visited on Thursday the protest tent in the community of Tekoa, where he met with the protesting residents and with the community’s rabbi, Rabbi Menachem Froman.

During the visit Goldstein said, “I fully identify with the plight of the residents and the goals of the protest. It cannot be that the basic right to live in dignity will be taken away from so many residents of Gush Etzion as well as residents of Tel Aviv and the entire State of Israel. The deep building freeze we had and the policy of the minister of defense that prevents us from building create an unbearable situation, regardless of political considerations.”
