Ben-Dahan: Get Used to Israeli Sovereignty
The transformation of the abandoned IDF base at Shdema into a cultural center is a sign of things to come, Rabbi Eli Ben-Dahan (Bayit Yehudi), the Deputy Minister for Religious Affairs, said Friday.
“Shdema will be a large, flourishing community,” he predicted.
“There will be no sovereign nation in the land of Israel other than the state of Israel,” he declared. “We must constantly repeat this statement… There will be families and children here, and from here, sovereignty will spread to all of Judea and Samaria [Shomron],” he added.
