The Women in Green movement applauds the data that emerge from a poll conducted ahead of the Ariel Conference for Law and Mass Media (to be held on April 29th), according to which some 80 percent of the public support the application of Israeli sovereignty over Judea and Samaria
Today (Sunday, April 21), saw the publication of the results of a special poll conducted by the Geocartography research institute on behalf of the Ariel Conference for Law and Mass Media, according to which some 80 percent of the public support the application of Israeli sovereignty over Judea and Samaria. The Women in Green movement applauds the results which, according to the heads of Women in Green, are not surprising.
According to the poll, some 80 percent of the respondents believe that Israel should apply sovereignty over Judea and Samaria, under whatever conditions. Of those, more than a third of the Israeli public is of the opinion that Israel has to apply sovereignty over all Judea and Samaria, while almost a quarter believes that it should be applied only over the settlement blocs.
Publications by the Ariel University further indicate that only about 20 percent of the public as a whole are of the opinion that Israel should apply sovereignty within the framework of an agreement.
Yehudit Katsover and Nadia Matar, leaders of Women in Green, the movement that for the past few years champions the acceptance of the idea of the application of sovereignty over Judea and Samaria, say that “these figures might be surprising for a part of the Israeli public, but this comes as no surprise to us. In recent years we have been traveling throughout Israel, and wherever the question of sovereignty is raised, the idea is received favorably, with extensive support.”
The two note the constantly growing numbers of participants in the conferences for the application of sovereignty – with the last one receiving tremendous media coverage – and the growing number of supporters of the idea, among both public figures and the public at large.
Katsover and Matar report that the three conferences held to now will have a continuation shortly, in the format of small and more focused lectures that will be held throughout the country, in order to continue to strengthen the awareness of the idea and the ability to realize it.
