Sovereignty Supporters Welcome Creation of Gov't Forum


The Women in Green Movement for Israel's Tomorrow and the Forum for the Application of Sovereignty in Judea and Samaria (Shomron) congratulated the government, Tuesday morning on the establishment of a forum of ministers to examine the application of Israeli sovereignty over  the Gush Etzion bloc of Judean Jewish communities.

The two groups issued a statement which said, "Sovereignty over Gush Etzion is the first, and correct, step of facing the reality, toward the goal of applying sovereignty over all of Judea, Samaria, and the Jordan Valley. For now, this is a first step of the establishment of a forum of government ministers, but the very establishment of the forum attests to the progress of the political system, to shaking off the fixation that paralyzed it in recent years and to its openness to political rejuvenation. Along with this, the Israeli government has shown that it is attentive to the mood of the people, that thirsts for a different, Jewish, moral, vision that ensures security - the vision of sovereignty."
