Likud Yesha Local Gov't Leaders: No More Talks with PA


Local government leaders from Judea and Samaria (Shomron) who are members of the Likud party sent a letter to party ministers, Thursday, in which they called for and end to talks with the Palestinian Authority and to the release of security prisoners in the wake of the murder of police commander Baruch Mizrahi on the eve of the Passover holiday.

Citing the PA for proving "that it is an authority that supports, organizes and educates for terror," the letter called for strengthening Israel's hold on the land and construction throughout "Judea, Samaria, Binyamin, Gush Etzion, the Hevron Hills and the Jordan Valley," as a way of planting the awareness in the hearts of Israel's enemies that Israel's presence is permanent and won't be deterred by threats.
