Head of Samaria Regional Council: New Proposal Not the Answer


Gershon Mesika, Head of the Samaria Regional Council, is adamantly opposing a new proposal which suggests that Israel freezes construction in Judea and Samaria in exchange for further peace talks.

Mesika exclaimed, “We expect the Ministers of Knesset to oppose these ridiculous proceedings, whose true meaning is that the State of Israel and its morals must be compromised in order to be given access to the ‘wondrous right’ to speak with Mahmoud Abbas.”

He added that, “The time has come for the State of Israel to stand upright and make clear to its opponents that they are invited to negotiate, without any prerequisites.”
