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 identify themselves.

"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 Internet 04/10/12)
