The Samaria Regional Council on Saturday night began a campaign in Israel and abroad to push for the application of Israeli sovereignty to Judea and Samaria, as per Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's recent promise - but without any the creation of a so-called "Palestinian" state.

Samaria Regional Council Head Yossi Dagan explained: "The 'deal of the century' presented by US President [Donald Trump] is a plan that includes a lot of good and strategic points for the State of Israel, alongside other, problematic, aspects."

"At the end of the day, the right expects sovereignty to be applied this week. Any delay is dangerous and may bring down the process and cause us to mourn for centuries, and it may also bring down the right-wing camp in the elections, erase the message of the nationalist camp led by the Prime Minister, and harm our chance of victory in the elections."

The new campaign will focus on two areas: The first part will be a media campaign broadcast in Israeli media, and include petitions, as well as demonstrations, if necessary.

The second part of the campaign will focus on the evangelistic community in the US which forms the base of US President Donald Trump's supporters and which opposes the creation of a Palestinian state in Israel, which they refer to as the "Holy Land." This part of the campaign will include talks with evangelical leaders who are close to Trump, as well as ads on evangelical and Republican media.
