A U.S. Jewish political action committee (PAC) called the ‘Iron Dome Alliance‘ is calling on the Republican Party to recognize Judea and Samaria as the indigenous homeland of the Jewish People, and Jerusalem as the eternal capital of Israel.
The PAC actually has asked both the GOP and the Democratic Party to include the recognition in their official platforms, including the regions under a geographic description of the ‘Land of Israel.’
The Alliance states on its website the belief that the ‘State of Israel is the modern re-establishment of the sovereign nation state of the Jewish people in their ancestral homeland and that Jerusalem is the eternal capital of the Jewish State of Israel, and the spiritual capital of the Jewish people.”
The group also states that “Judea and Samaria is the heartland of the Biblical holy land, the cradle of Jewish civilization, and Israel’s claim to this internationally disputed territory is right and just.”
Alliance chairman Jeff Ballabon said the group is focusing its efforts on the Republican Party because it is simply more attuned to pro-Israel positions.
