Settler leader Weiss tells teens ´the people of Israel who will
decide the Land of Israel´s fate´
Several dozen Jewish teenagers on Tuesday took advantage of the
Passover holiday to erect a new outpost near the Hashmonaim community
in the West Bank.
The teens, who called the outpost "Or Hadash (new light)," clashed
with security forces at the scene. The security forces confiscated
tools that were used to build the outpost.
Two teenage girls who tried to snatch the tools back were held for
questioning but released a short while later after agreeing to
"We are returning to the land of our forefathers, which has been
waiting for us for 2,000 years," said one of the teenage girls who
helped erect the outpost.
"We will not be discouraged by the destroyers. We will respond to
every act of destruction with expansion," she said.
Former Kedumim Council head Daniella Weiss, was also involved in the
construction of the outpost. Addressing the teenagers, she said, "It
is the people of Israel who will decide the fate of the Land of
Israel in the face of all the appeasers - in the face of (US
President Barack) Obama and the regime in the US.
"The Land of Israel is meant for the people of Israel, and we will
build everywhere," Weiss declared. (Copyright 2012 © Yedioth
