Next week, the signing ceremony for the agreement on normalization between Israel and the United Arab Emirates will take place at the White House. We have been hearing the festive cheers relating to this agreement for several weeks now and we can expect to hear even more thunderous applause for the signing event, but a sober, careful glance, bruised by experience, should raise alarms for us.
Is this agreement part of the package deal promoted by the American President, whose purpose is to establish a Palestinian state in the heart of the Land of Israel? Do the voices rising from the Gulf states and Saudi Arabia reveal the political intention behind the agreement, Arab normalization with Israel in exchange for a Palestinian state? Are the pronouncements about the delay in sovereignty in Trump’s version to a later date intended to push Abu Mazen and his people to come to the negotiating table? Aren’t the voices in the Arab world urging Abu Mazen to begin negotiations after the agreements between Israel and the Gulf states signs leading to the catastrophic goal of establishing a terror state in the heart of our Land?
In recent days we have circulated an article in the media with a call to the Rightwing camp to see reality correctly, to demand clear answers from the leadership, to demand that it not stray from the path of Zionism into the crooked paths of withdrawals and concessions such as the Oslo Accords and the Bar Ilan speech, and especially not to allow the dazzling description of peace celebrations to blind us on the way to Palestinian statehood.

Return to the values of the nationalist camp
Our movement encourages the head of the Council of YESHA and the Jordan Valley, our friend David Elhayani, who is not deterred by criticism from the nationalist camp cannons for his fight against the package deal known as the Deal of the Century.
In an interview for Arutz 7, Elhayani rejected the claim that his sharp statements against the American plan might lead to missing the opportunity to implement sovereignty. Elhayani says that he is proud of his opposition to the plan, which, from its inception, and ever since, has made it clear that its goal is the establishment of a Palestinian state. Elhayani calls on the Israeli leadership to return to the foundational values of the nationalist camp and apply sovereignty without any connection or link to the plan that sees as a goal the establishment of a Palestinian state, sovereignty that is consistent with Israeli interests alone and not American interests or the interests of anyone else.
In light of all this, Elhayani calls on Netanyahu to give up his seat for new leadership that is faithful to the values of the Likud, to grasp the helm of the party and the state.

To me, sovereignty is…
And this time, our guest is Minister of Health Yoel (Yuli) Edelstein:
“For me, sovereignty is an existential necessity for the People of Israel. When, in Siberian prison, I dreamed of the Land of Israel, there was no Green Line or beyond it. It was a state that took care of all its citizens without discriminating against its pioneers. When there is full sovereignty, the injustice will end”.

For those who have not understood, Kushner clarifies the intentions
Jarred Kushner, son-in-law of the President of the United States and the person who is considered the mastermind behind the 'Deal of the Century', held a briefing in which he clarified the intentions behind the plan. Kushner puts it simply: the plan's intention is to save the two-state solution and to halt the spread of Israeli hold onto Judea and Samaria.
No need to be more clear than that. Click here to read the English report about it. We translated this also into Hebrew and disseminated the content of his remarks from that briefing. Please spread far and wide. The warning signs continue to flash. It's definitely time to wake up. The Land of Israel is in grave danger.
