Tzipi Hotovely: Declaring State Lands in Gush Etzion Step in Right Direction


Deputy Minister Tzipi Hotovely (Likud) welcomed the move made in declaring lands in Samaria and Judea's Gush Etzion region as State Lands. "The recognition of these lands is a symbolic act in the right direction, " she said.

She added, however, that "the full process will only be completed with a full annexation of all the Jewish communities in Samaria and Judea, as it has become decidedly clear that the majority of the Israeli public understands that the terrorism increases when Israel cedes its territory."
