Rabbi Wolpe: Reconquer Sinai


Chairman Shalom Dov Wolpe of the Eretz Yisrael Shelanu (Our Land of Israel/The Land of Israel is Ours) movement reacted, Sunday evening to the rise of Mohammed Mursi of the Muslim Brotherhood to President-elect of Egypt by saying, "Israel must take preventative steps and immediately conquer the Sinai Peninsula, which was transferred to Egypt in the Camp David Accords."

Rabbi Wolpe said, "Israel needs to be resourceful as on the eve of the Six Day War, and not be caught complacent," adding that, "when all the concept of peace with Egypt is crashing, particularly the soldiers are on the border and terrorist organizations control all space in the Sinai, only re-conquest of the Sinai will return power to Israel."
