The Land is Ours

On Thursday, I attended the Second Annual Conference on the Application of Israeli Sovereignty over Judea and Samaria, held in Hevron, at the visitors' center near the Machpela and sponsored by the Women in Green (with organization done by Yehudit Katsover and Nadia Matar). Several hundred people were in attendance; with perhaps miniscule exceptions of which I was unaware, they were all firm believers in the need for, and the rightness of, that sovereignty from the river the sea.

What seems to me the single most important impact of a conference such as this one is that it brings together those who passionately care about this issue, providing not only information, but a huge morale boost and an opportunity to network. It's really great to be at a conference at which no one says, "Wait, what about the Palestinians' right to their state?" Because everyone gets it.

MK Tzipi Hotovely (Likud) announced her intention to introduce the Levy Committee findings into the record as law. If it doesn't pass, she says, she will continue to do so as often as the law permits, until it does pass.

I am greatly encouraged by this. Tzipi who is a lawyer, is as sweet as she looks, when you meet her. But she's tough and very determined. For me, this represents the hope for Israel's future. We're going in the right direction, at long last, and slowly we will get where we need to go.

It is hoped that in not many years the right wing nationalists will represent the majority opinion of Israel.
