Right-Wing Politicians Sign Declaration for Goal of 2 Million Jews in Yehudah and Shomron


Senior right-wing politicians have signed a declaration to support the goal of two million Jews living in Yehudah and Shomron, The Jerusalem Post reported on Tuesday.

The declaration belongs to the Nahal movement, which has promoted the plan for many years with support from the Likud.

Among those who signed on Monday night were: Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein, Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz, Tourism Minister Yariv Levin, Yerushalayim Affairs Minister Zeev Elkin, Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan, Culture Minister Miri Regev, all of Likud. It was also signed by the heads of the New Right party, Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked and Education Minister Naftali Bennett.

In the past two weeks, Nahal members have staged protests in front of Prime Minister Netanyahu’s home, demanding that the government adopt a clear policy to allow Jewish building in all of Yehudah and Shomron, and reject the two-state solution.
