"Don't Wait for Abbas to Eat Hummus in Tel Aviv"


Member of Knesset Shuli Muallem-Refaeli (Jewish Home) announced her support for applying Israeli sovereignty over Judea and Samaria. "There is no point in waiting any longer for Mahmoud Abbas to come dip hummus in Tel Aviv," she stated, using an Israeli figure of speech. "The words of [United States Secretary of State John] Kerry and the Palestinian Authority's appeal to the United Nations are a sign that it's time to pass a government decision and apply Israeli sovereignty over all of Judea and Samaria," she stated. Her comments came as Economics Minister Naftali Bennett and Deputy Minister of Religious Affairs Eli Ben-Dahan also called for sovereignty.
