Jewish settlers prepare to fight for their homes

Thursday, September 11, 2008 |  Israel Today Staff

Jewish leaders from across Judea and Samaria (the so-called "West Bank") met this week to sign the "Samaria Pact," a pledge that they will work together to prevent any further evacuations of Jews from their God-given lands.

The meeting came just hours after the government of Prime Minister Ehud Olmert met to discuss a proposal to essentially bribe Jewish settlers to move into the internationally-recognized parts of Israel.

Media reports regarding the Samaria Pact did not elaborate on what extents the settlers intend to go to in order to defend their homes, though many settler leaders have insisted they will not resort to deadly force against the Jewish soldiers and police sent to expel them.
