Yesha Leaders Back Ya'alon Regarding US


Leaders of Jewish governing bodies in Judea and Samaria issued a letter, Monday, in support of Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon in the wake of his recent criticism of the United States and the American demand for an apology. Addressed to Ya'alon and referring to an outline by US Secretary of State John Kerry for continued talks, the letter cited "your courage to tell the truth even when it is not popular and words that the upcoming agreement poses an existential threat to Israel and the Zionist enterprise."

They continued, "Few people are capable of discovering public courage at this time. Be strong and aware that residents of the State of Israel and supporters of Israel stand behind you."
