Some 100 Land of Israel activists, families and youth group members
sought to establish a new foothold in Samaria on Tuesday.
The new outpost – named "Or Hadash" from the verse "A new light shine
on Zion" in Psalm 136 – was to raised in West Binyamim, near the site
of an ancient Hasmonean-era community.
However, Border Police were waiting for the activists with an order
to confiscate "serial settlers" tools. Two girls who asked to see the
order were detained and then released.
In place of establishing a new community, activites were held for
children including the building of a "small forest" of connected
stones and a lightweight structure.
A core of young men and women who plan to stay at Or Hadash also
established a campsite.
Pioneer leader Daniella Weiss said, "The people of Israel will decide
the fate of the Land of Israel, not the government."
"We were here before Obama and the American Dominion," Weiss
said. "We are here to tell the people that the Land of Israel is for
the People of Israel, and that we will continue build everywhere,"
Shlomit, one of the young woman planning to remain at Or Hadash
said, "We reclaim our patrimony, which has been waiting for us for
2,000 years. Do not despair the destroyers, despite all the
destruction we shall overcome." (IsraelNationalNews © 2012 04/10/12)
