As background explanation for the bill, MK Eldad wrote,
"The State of Israel faces a situation of unclear borders, and a considerable percentage of its citizens and residents of the areas under its control live in uncertainty... This harms the momentum of settlement in Yesha, and also causes the Arab residents in the region to hope that an independent Palestinian state will soon be established in this area, leading them not to cooperate with Israel, but rather to take part in terrorism against Israel."
A second bill proposed by MK Eldad, entitled "Unity of the Army," would require the approval of 2/3 of the Knesset - 80 Knesset Members - in order to employ the armed forces in law-enforcement missions not directly related to national security. The bill, if passed, would preclude the use of soldiers in removing outposts in Judea, Samaria and Gaza, and would allocate police forces for such missions. Likud MK Ayoub Kara has proposed a similar bill.
Turning to other areas of Israel, four MKs of Shas and the National Union have proposed the "Improving the Demographic Balance in the Negev and Galilee" bill. The proposal calls for government encouragement of residential construction in these areas, with the aim of doubling the population there within ten years. The proposed measures include encouraging industry, lowering the price of land, and offering financial incentives to those moving into those regions.
