Shas Council Members and Educators Visit Samaria


Local council members and heads of educational institutions associated with the Sephardic-hareidi Shas party toured the Shomron (Samaria) this week as part of the Samaria Regional Council's "Samaria - Nice to Meet You" campaign, which brings people of influence to the region.

The visitors, a number of whom had attended vacations and seminars held by the extreme-left Genevia Initiative organization, expressed surprise and admiration for area residents. They added that they could not understand how the media is allowed to create a phony barrier between them and the residents.
