Dozens of young men and women hiked through Samaria recently, walking in areas that Jews usually avoid.  One group walked through the hostile Arab village of Huwarra on its way to Tapuach Junction.  Soldiers arrested 30 of the hikers.

Land of Israel activist Meir Bertler explained that the hike was meant to restore a Jewish presence in areas where Jews had not set foot for decades.  Walking freely in the area is the first step towards establishing new Jewish communities, he said.
