(IsraelNN.com) Dozens of Land of Israel activists, from Jerusalem, Kiryat Arba Hevron, Gush Etzion and southern Hevron showed a Jewish presence on Tuesday on the Neguhot road, which partially passes through areas controlled by the Palestinian Authority. The activity was organized by Women in Green and the Action Committees of Efrat/Gush Etzion, Kiryat Arba/Hevron, and southern Hevron.
“This unbearable situation which exists for years already, must be corrected immediately”, said the organizers. “Complete Israeli sovereignty must be reinstalled on the Adurayim-Neguhot road.”
The car convoy departed from Kiryat Arba Hevron proudly waving Israeli flags. The convoy arrived at Neguhot and held a march near the place where an Arab terrorist had thrown a Molotov cocktail at an Egged bus two days ago, injuring a girl.
After the march the activists went to plant trees in the Beit Hakerem neighborhood of Neguhot where, two months ago, two houses had been destroyed by the government. Women in Green’s Nadia Matar was moved by the visit â€“ “It was heartwarming to see how the two families had not been broken by this political destruction of their house and managed to rebuild a home in which they live, despite the very harsh physical conditions. When we were there, youngsters were preparing the roof for the upcoming rain by putting plastic sheets on top of the building.”
“Against the government’s weakness”, explained Matar, “the families in the hills of Neguhot express strength and courage. Zionism 2010 at its best! At a time when the political echelon shows weakness and a willingness to capitulate â€“ we must initiate and increase the activities that express Jewish sovereignty over the Land of Israel.”
