Mesika: Libya Won't Teach Us About Morality


The head of the Shomron Regional Council, Gershon Mesika, responded on Thursday to the UN Human Rights Council’s resolution that orders a probe into how Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria and parts of Jerusalem are affecting the rights of area Arabs.

“It’s not countries like Libya who will teach the State of Israel about morality,” said Mesika and added that “Judea and Samaria are the heart of the homeland of the Jewish people. Israel has a right enshrined in the Bible to its land. Israel will continue to build the country.”
