A mini conference on the subject of Israeli Sovereignty in Judea & Samaria will be held at the OU-Israel Center in Jerusalem on Monday night June 20th at 7:30 PM. The name of the event is “The Preferred Option: Israeli Sovereignty over Judea and Samaria”.
The speakers for the evening will be Yoram Ettinger (Ambassador – ret.), Dani Dayan (Chairman, Yesha Council), Dr. Mordechai Kedar (Bar Ilan University) and Caroline Glick (Jerusalem Post).
According to event organizer Yoel Meltzer the purpose of the evening is to break the ice and start a process, namely the active promotion of Israeli sovereignty in Judea and Samaria as the eventual alternative to the two-state solution. By bringing together four well-known public figures for one evening, the hope is that other likeminded individuals – whether from the academic world, the media, the business sector, the security establishment, the legal establishment or the political echelon – will be attracted to the initiative in order to participate in future speaking engagements.
In doing so, Meltzer hopes to create a serious discussion of the topic on a national level, one that will explore the complex issues and identify possible solutions. Equally important, the process will bring the idea of Israeli sovereignty in Judea and Samaria towards the mainstream and make it into a real viable option.
