Otzma Party Rallies Support Against PA Outpost in E1


The Otzma LeYisrael party will hold an event in Maale Adumim to discuss their platform in the upcoming elections. The party believes in building on all parts of Israel including throughout Judea and Samaria. The meeting will be held in the northern part of the city which has a clear view of the E1 neighborhood, also known as Mevaseret Adumim. 
 
This week residents of the Palestinian Authority established tents in E1 to protest Israel's building plans there. The Otzma LeYisrael party has called upon the government to remove the PA residents outpost and to go forward with establishing permanent housing units for Jewish residents. 
 
The E1 land is part of the Maale Adumim municipality. The Israeli government has warned that the outpost presents a security risk.
 
Member of Knesset Dr. Aryeh Eldad will speak in English at the Pnei Shmuel synagogue in Maale Adumim on Thursday January 17th.
