  • The Mission Continues

    As in the past so it remains today - we were and still are under the selfsame commitment to adhere to the directions of the Gedolei Yisrael, who stand guard against breaches of purity threatening our camp. When we were required to ask – we asked. When we were instructed to depart – we left. The moment we are summoned back to raise the flag, every other consideration is pushed to the side and we answer: We are ready!

Fierce Clashes At Kedumim Settlement

Civil Administration inspectors were attacked at the entrance to the settlement. Prime Minister Netanyahu: "The heads of the Yesha settlements are our brothers."

At the Kedumim settlement in the Shomron this morning, there were fierce clashes between the residents and police, who arrived together with Civil Administration inspectors to distribute stop-building orders.

The violent confrontation between the residents of Kedumim and security forces broke out early this morning. The entrance to the settlement was blocked, but dozens of soldiers and policemen physically moved the residents off of the road, where they were staging a sit-down protest. Among the people involved in the clash were the head of the regional council, Chananel Dorani, and the Rabbi of Kedumim. During the clashes with the security forces, 2 people were arrested.

The inspectors eventually gained entry into the settlement, by sneaking through a back entrance by way of an adjacent Arab village. They distributed the stop-construction orders, but not before a car belonging to one of the inspectors was pelted with eggs by the settlement residents.

This morning, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu addressed the increasing incidents of clashes between security forces and Civil Administration inspectors with settlement residents. During the Cabinet meeting, Netanyahu said that building that has already begun will not be stopped. "The decision is certainly not easy for the heads of the communities in Yehuda and Shomron and for us," he said. "These are parts of our homeland, and these are our brothers – they are part of us and we are part of them. The decision stems from many of the State of Israel's interests. Today it is also clear who wants peace and who refuses peace."

Netanyahu added that the Cabinet decision would be implemented to the letter. "There are difficulties accompanying the decision, some bureaucratic and unnecessary. Therefore, I have appointed a team of ministers, led by Defense Minister Ehud Barak and Minister Benny Begin, together with the coordinator of the government's activities in the territories, Major-General Eitan Dangot, and Cabinet Secretary Zvi Hauser. Our aim in appointing this team is not to allow new construction, but also not to stop existing construction. This team has been working since Friday and reports directly to me every day," the Prime Minister concluded.
