Women in Green announced Thursday it will support the Knesset lobby for the application of Israeli sovereignty in Judea and Samaria's bid to apply Israeli law in the region, in order to raise public awareness. 

Columnist Caroline Glick is scheduled to address the lobby in Hebrew on Wednesday, when it holds its first conference.

"All the problems that have arisen regarding Givat Assaf, Migron, Amona, the Ulpanah neighborhood in Bet-El, and additional locations, ensue from the fact that we are not viewed as the owners of this land, but rather, a 'foreign occupier, a dangerous invader, who dispossesses the Arabs,'" the group wrote.

"Forty-five years late," they continued, noting the years past since Israel liberated Judea and Samaria in the 1967 Six Day War. "The time has come to rectify the situation and to extend Israeli sovereignty to the expanses of our land."

"The national camp, which constitutes the majority of the Israeli public, never wanted or supported the 'two-state solution," the statement continued. 

"The alternative of the extension of Israeli law to Judea and Samaria offers a practical, just, and correct solution."
