Protestors Demand Govt. Back Off on PA Deals
Activists from Judea and Samaria, along with members of the Komemiyut organization, on Sunday night protested the developing agreement between Israel and the Palestinian Authority. According to the activists, the statements emerging from the government and from officials traveling with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry indicate that an interim agreement is near, and that it will likely be very damaging to the state of Israel, and to towns in Judea and Samaria.
Hundreds of protesters demonstrated at the entrance to Jerusalem, and called on the Prime Minister and other ministers in his government to act to prevent the imposition of such an agreement. The protesters called attention to the dangers of such an agreement.
Moshe Cohen, head of the Kommemiyut organization said that “the public was until now unconcerned over the dangers that have increased in recent weeks. Now, the writing is on the wall, and in very large letters. We are at a critical and dangerous juncture for the settlement project and for the security of Israel. Hopefully we will wake up in time, and government ministers will prevent this dangerous process from going forward.”
In closed rooms, “Tzipi Livni is giving away important parts of our homeland,” said Benny Katzover, chairman of the Samaria Residents Committee. “We are here to remind everyone that we have already seen this process in the past. We will not allow a third installment of the Oslo Accords to be imposed on us.”
