MK Chetboun Salutes Neve Dekalim, Yeshiva

Member of Knesset Yoni Chetboun (Habayit Hayehudi) toured the city of Ashdod, Thursday, and met with residents and party activists.

At the end of the tour, Chetboun said, "I could not ignore the following picture: trailers, barracks and the Israeli flag, a lot of gravel and a little old, familiar sign - Neve Dekalim." Referring to the government's eviction of about 10,000 Jews from Gaza and northern Samaria Shomron in 2005, he continued, "The Neve Dekalim yeshiva, which was in Gush Katif until the expulsion, was re-established in Ashdod. The people of Gush [Katif] are teaching us a great lesson in faith and coping."
