Press Release

Jewish Activists Organize against a "Two State Solution"

PRESS CONFERENCE 

Wednesday, May 20th at 5 pm

At JFK Airport, terminal 4, Fourth Floor 

 Major activists on behalf of the Land of Israel are organizing to declare that the Land of Israel belongs to the Jewish people for over 3,000 years and should not be negotiated away. The Bible provides the clearest proof that this Land was given to the Jewish people and throughout history no other nation or people ever built a state within its borders.  From the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem and until 1948, no people ever claimed that this was their land except the Jewish people. The "Mandate for Palestine," a historical League of Nations document, laid down the Jewish legal right to settle anywhere in western Palestine, between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea, an entitlement unaltered in international law.  The notion that this land is "Palestinian" is an egregious mistake based on ignorance of history.  

The purpose of this grassroots effort is to  educate the world to this fact: the Land of Israel has been connected with the Jewish people for over three millennia and no other people has a right to this land. The Arabs are among those who invaded the land and have no legal rights to establish a sovereign nation within the borders of the land. This was recognized by the Balfour declaration and confirmed by the League of Nations. The new-found idea that the land belongs to any other nation is a new idea which has as its aim the separation of the true owner from its land. We also should remember the soldiers who fell fighting for this land and the sacrifices of the pioneers who built what is now a flourishing land and country.  

This grassroots effort is also directed at all major Jewish organizations calling upon them to reaffirm unequivocally their commitment to the Biblical Heritage and its unbreakable bond with the landMajor concepts, principles and precepts that are at the foundation of all civilizations have their origins in the Bible. The activists have now reached over 30,000 people residing all over the world and who are in contact via email.   We have circulated a petition to formally request that all Major Religious Jewish Organizations,  and especially those committed to the Torah,   express  a clear message,  that the Land of Israel is our Heritage from Biblical times and that the Jewish people oppose ceding any part of Biblical Israel to any foreign nation.  The tragedy of Gush Katif (the withdrawal from Gaza) must not be repeated. The letter may be accessed via this link, Letter to Religious Jewish Organizations.   

Featured speakers include Rabbi Chaim Richman, from the Temple Institute,  Jerusalem, Rabbi Algaze from The World Committee for the Land of Israel, Rabbi Moshe Goldsmith - Mayor of Itamar, Shomron and Morton Klein of the Zionist Organization of America. We will also hear  greetings and blessings  from Rabbanim and  political leaders in Israel . 

We proclaim that we are partners with the settlement enterprise to proudly settle and protect the Holy Land, the Land of our Ancestors, in Judea and Samaria and throughout the entire Promised Land and do not reject our Biblical birthright our precious gift from G-d.
