"We welcome the arrival of our dear friend Minister Ofir Akunis, here in Gush Etzion," said Shlomo Ne'eman, head of the Gush Etzion Regional Council, who has just learned from the minister the concept of an ancient people with a huge future. Etzion, one of the oldest places in the country, where the sovereignty of Judea and Samaria comes out of the land of sovereignty, and we thank the minister for his great support both in the field of his professional office and on the national level.
