Cabinet Approves Referendum Bill

The Israeli cabinet approved a bill that would require a referendum on any deal with the Palestinian Authority that would involve relinquishing sovereign Israeli land. The bill does not include Judea or Samaria, which have not yet been annexed, unlike the Golan and parts of Jerusalem after it was liberated.

The bill will now go to the Knesset for a vote.

The vote on releasing Arab terrorists was postponed, after Netanyahu saw that he didn’t have the support to pass it at this point.

  1. This referendum has to the only two following questions:
    Do you want 2 states solution: yes or no.
    Do you want to set up dead penalty: yes or no.
    This hould be the only questions, no more other questions to avoid confusion.

  2. Cheryl Kipreotis says:

    every country in the world, from the Orient to the North American continent have gained lands either thru conquest or purchase. To deny Israel the same international right, would morally force ALL nations that have gained lands by conquest to give said lands BACK to original owners – which country is prepared to do that? all – stand up and give account!

    This land always belonged to Israel. It was taken back from Jordan and needed for a defense barrier against Arab aggression, violence & bombs. I quote info taken from another author..Info by By Rachel Avraham, staff writer for United With Israel.
    History reminds us that the Palestine Mandate, supported by all 51 members of the League of Nations at the time, and codified in international law, is recognized as legally valid by the United Nations in Article 80 of the UN Charter. In addition, the International Court of Justice has reaffirmed this on three different occasions. Some people argue the Palestine Mandate became obsolete following its termination in 1947. International legal scholars claim otherwise. According to Eugene Rostow, a Dean of Yale Law School, “A trust never terminates when a trustee dies, resigns, embezzles the trust property, or is dismissed. The authority responsible for the trust appoints a new trustee, or otherwise arranges for the fulfillment of its purpose.” While the Palestine Mandate ceased to exist in Israel and Jordan when Israel and the Hashemite Kingdom obtained independence, Rostow maintains that “its rules apply still to the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, which have not yet been allocated either to Israel or to Jordan or become an independent state.” Israeli legal claims to Judea and Samaria are strengthened by the fact that no other sovereign nation state claims this territory as her own. Both the Ottoman Turks and the British Mandate renounced their claims to the Land of Israel decades ago, including Judea and Samaria. Furthermore, Jordan’s annexation of Judea and Samaria following Israel’s declaration of independence was never internationally recognized, since it amounted to an act of aggression. Both the UN Security Council and UN General Assembly declared at that time that Israel was a peace-loving state in the 1948 war.
