The struggle for reclaiming all of the Land of Israel continues even
on “Independence Day,” Yom HaAtzmaut, say Women in Green.
Under the Banner "We Safeguard You, Beloved Land,” the nationalist
group is planning to rally on the hills of Netzer, in Gush Etzion, on
Yom HaAtzmaut in a continuing battle to keep Arabs from confiscating
"The Arabs, who realized that the central Yom HaAtzmaut event in Gush
Etzion will be held there, blocked the upper entrance with boulders,”
according to Women in Green, whose activists moved the boulders and
opened all the trails.
Organizers said events in Netzer will take place from noon until
14:30 .m. but that preparations are not simple. A tractor was brought
in to level the area so that children can jump and down on inflatable
A special attraction will be the magician Rabbi Victor Attia.
Water will be supplied by the irrigation pipes that, all year long,
water the hundreds of trees that activists planted to guard the
Jewish lands from an Arab takeover. Visitors will be able to tour all
the areas redeemed by the plantings, in all-terrain vehicles .
Canvas sheeting will provide shade for the barbecuers, and Adam
Tzachi will perform "We Sing to You, Beloved Land" at 3:30 p.m.
Women and Green said Netzer is only one of hundreds of areas that
Arabs and Bedouin confiscate on a daily basis in the Negev, Judea and
Samaria and the Galilee.
“In recent months, Arabs with European funding and with the
encouragement and participation of international anarchists have
succeeded in plowing and planting hundreds of acres of wheat
throughout the entire Judea region,” said Women in Green. “Now, they
are fencing off areas with fences that were donated to them by
international anti-Israel organizations." (IsraelNationalNews © 2012
