Major Protest Against Land Concessions to PA


A major protest is being organized against land concessions to the Palestinian Authority. Yosef Rabin, one of the organizers spoke to Arutz Sheva news about the Thursday evening rally. "The whole premise of releasing terrorists for negotiations is absurd," he stated, referring to the newly started talks being conducted by Justice Minister Tzipi Livni and PA representative Saeb Erekat. "If we don't stand up now, we will find a situation far worse then the expulsion from Gush Katif," he added. Rabin said there was no major organization behind the rally, but rather a grassroots initiative. He said the Israeli government may agree to transfer land to PA control, similar to the 2005 Disengagement from Gaza in which the Gaza Jewish communities of Gush Katif were forcibly removed. The demonstration is planned for Thursday August 29th at 7:30PM in front of the official Prime Minister's Residence on Ramban Street near Paris Square in Jerusalem.
