A mass rally to salute the settlement enterprise in Judea, Samaria and Jerusalem began in downtown Jerusalem's Kikar Tzion (Zion Square) at 7 PM this evening (12 noon EST). The theme: "Yes to building, no to concessions!"

INN is providing live coverage here. 

For one of the first times, the hareidi-religious public will take full part in an event of this nature, and the unity thus displayed will be highly touted. Public figures from across the religious and nationalist spectrum will take part to show solidarity and support for continued presence and building in Judea and Samaria.

Star music performers Ariel Zilber, Mendy Jerufi, Gad Elbaz and Yishai Lapidot will entertain during the course of the event, which is being organized by the Task Force to Save the Nation and the Land.

Among the speakers will be Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Jacobson of Chabad, who is arriving from the United States for a short trip of a few hours specifically in order to address the rally. He has said he will transmit a message of "encouragement and strength from the Jewish communities in the U.S. to the hundreds of thousands of Jews living in Judea and Samaria and defending the Land of Israel."
