Former Justice Minister MK Ayelet Shaked toured Sderot on Wednesday.

During her visit, Shaked visited the local hesder yeshiva and explained to the students the significance of the upcoming elections.

"We are faced with a great opportunity to make history; otherwise it will be a century [before we have another chance]. We must apply sovereignty over Judea, Samaria, and the Jordan Valley now, before the elections. The choice is between Yamina and applying sovereignty on the one hand, and electing any other party and having a Palestinian terrorist state, ”Shaked explained.

"In the Deal of the Century: If we start applying sovereignty, we will no longer reach a Palestinian state. If we start negotiations on a Palestinian state, we will reach Oslo 2, east Jerusalem run by terrorists and exploding buses."

She also noted that her party is the only one opposed to a Palestinian Arab state.

Shaked said the Yamina party is the only party which acts for the strengthening of Jewish identity in the state. "Only we will ensure the strengthening of Jewish identity. It does not interest the haredim or the Likud."

"Religious Zionism as a sector has needs, and at the end of the day, we're the only ones who will take care of them. For our yeshivas, for the [Religious Zionist] national service [program]s and all our other wonderful activities," she added.
