The leaders of the Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria sent a message to Prime Minister Netanyahu ahead of his meeting with Alternate Prime Minister Benny Gantz and US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman, calling on the prime minister to "remember the two million voters of the right-wing bloc."

The meeting is considered significant for the implementation of the Trump Administration's 'Deal of the Century.' Foreign Minister Gabi Ashkenazi and Knesset Speaker Yariv Levin are also expected to attend the meeting.

At the meeting, Prime Minister Netanyahu will discuss the implementation of the American peace plan, and the Yesha Council called on Netanyahu not to forget that he has made the application of sovereignty in Judea and Samaria a central platform in the election campaign.

"We are in the midst of a historic time for the settlements, and ask the prime minister to consider the more than two million voters of the right-wing bloc who chose him in order to apply sovereignty here in Judea, Samaria and the Jordan Valley," the council noted.

The Yesha Council further stated that while it is important to ccordinate the application of sovereignty with the United States, that coordination cannot be the determining factor in what Israel will do or cause Netanyahu to break his promises to the right-wing bloc.

"Prime Minister Netanyahu, don't forget your promises on the eve of the election: sovereignty in Judea and Samaria and opposition to the establishment of a Palestinian state. Keep to the principles of the right-wing bloc in full. Palestinian. We all want you to be the first prime minister to apply sovereignty, but we do not want you to be remembered as the prime minister who laid the foundations for the establishment of a Palestinian state. Do it right," the council concluded.
