“We understand the anger of local residents who were exposed to our operation, but we also understand that a terrorist state is around the corner,” Regavim CEO Meir Deutsch stated.

Israelis driving in Judea and Samaria Sunday morning were shocked to see hundreds of Palestinian flags flying along the main roads. And many were incensed to learn that they were hung in Area C – the area under Israeli control – not by hostile Palestinian Arabs, but by right-wing Jews on behalf of Regavim, an Israeli NGO promoting what it describes as “a Jewish Zionist agenda for the State of Israel.”
More than 28,000 illegal Palestinian structures have been built in areas under Israeli jurisdiction in Judea and Samaria in the last decade, threatening Israel’s future, according to Regavim. The newly drawn map of the situation on the ground reflects both illegal construction and land-grabs, says the organization.
“We understand the anger of local residents who were exposed to our operation, but we also understand that a terrorist state is around the corner,” Regavim CEO Meir Deutsch said in a statement.
“The public in Judea and Samaria has fallen asleep at the wheel,” he added. “The flags we planted will not determine the future of Judea and Samaria, but the tens of thousands of buildings built over the past decade and tens of thousands of acres of land that have been taken over by the PA with the assistance of European countries will certainly determine the future of Area C.
“It is time for the Israeli government to act to stop the Fayyad plan,” he said – referring to the working plan, published in 2009 by former PA Prime Minister Salem Fayyad, to create the institutional framework for Palestinian independence via state-building efforts, with the existence of a de facto state.
Preventing such a scenario “is doable, and it is the order of the day,” Deutsch affirmed.
