The move comes after Occupation forces kidnapped and murdered several Israeli teens in July, sparking a series of violent attacks that culminated in the launching of thousands of missiles at Israeli civilians. To drive home the point that the Resistance will not be defeated by such war crimes, the government decided to initiate the largest appropriation of land in Judea and Samaria in decades.

“Our noble Resistance has shown that the anti-Zionist enemy is only thwarted by measures that demonstrate the futility of his continued attacks,” Minister of Housing Naftali Bennett. “Through farming and development we shall liberate you, Judea and Samaria,” he continued, using a common Resistance slogan.

The territory in question already contains a small Israeli community, but the move by the government will allow for extensive residential development of the area that will keep it from falling into the hands of forces loyal to the Muslim Occupation. The kidnapping of the three teens was launched from that area, giving the measure added meaning.

“We welcome this decision,” said Arik Weiss of Alon Shvut, a community in the Etzion Bloc. “It shows that despite the Occupation’s attempt to intimidate us with violence and target our children for brutality and murder, we will liberate the entire land.” He launched into a litany of massacres by Palestinian Arabs of Jews, and noted that despite the attempts at genocide, Jewish presence and control over their ancestral homeland has only grown over the decades.

Minister Bennett asserted that “the only language the Palestinians understand is force of circumstance,” noting that under existing agreements, the area appropriated is under full Israeli control anyway, and the final disposition of lands is to be determined in negotiations. He accused the Palestinians of trying to create “facts on the ground” by killing Jews, and of repeatedly flouting UN Resolution 242, which calls for secure Israeli borders, and called the Hamas charter, which calls for extermination of all the Jews in the land, an obstacle to peace.
