MK Yogev: Adopt Levy Report and Start Sovereignty


Member of Knesset Motti Yogev (Jewish Home) said, Friday, that Thursday's decision to impose sanctions on the Palestinian Authority (PA) for unifying with Hamas was lacking. Speaking during a visit to the northern city of Tiberias, he said the PA's actions were not motivated by money.

Yogev proposed that the government adopt the recommendations of the Levy Committee report, which rejects Israel's status as an illegal occupier in Judea and Samaria (Shomron). He called for the building of thousands of dwelling units between Jerusalem and the eastern suburb of Ma'aleh Adumim and the annexation of Rachel's Tomb to the capital or beginning Israeli sovereignty over blocs of Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria, subject to philosophical determinations.
