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. "We call upon the government of Israel to heed the voices that arise from the people. The government has a golden opportunity to demonstrate a true Zionist pioneering spirit and lead the public a step forward on its way to its political and security redemption."
80 Percent of Israelis Want Sovereignty over Judea and Samaria
International law must recognize Israeli sovereignty in Judea and Samaria
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 until 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.
"We call upon the government of Israel to heed the voices that arise from the people. The government has a golden opportunity to demonstrate a true Zionist pioneering spirit and lead the public a step forward on its way to its political and security redemption. Today, the application of sovereignty is a necessity, that can be implemented with determination and courage. The people has sobered up from the two-state illusion, and it seeks a true Zionist answer, one based on values. The application of Israeli sovereignty over the cradle of Jewish history, Judea and Samaria, is undoubtedly such an answer," Katsover and Matar say.
It should be noted that the demand for sovereignty, as indicated by the poll commissioned by Ariel University, is not necessarily centered among voters for the right. A total of 60 percent of the respondents who define their views as left wing views think, to some degree or other, that Israel has to apply sovereignty over all or a part of Judea and Samaria. Among those who define their views as left wing, 42 percent agree, in some degree, that international law must recognize Israeli sovereignty in Judea and Samaria.

These days, final preparations are being made for the fourth Sovereignty Conference, which will be held on Sunday, the 16th of Tevet, February 12th, in conjunction with the periodical Basheva (and will be broadcast live on Arutz 7). In this conference as well, in which ministers, members of Knesset and public figures will take part, the various ideas of how to promote sovereignty will be presented. However, in contrast to previous conferences, in this conference, Matar and Katsover intend to outline a plan that will offer a first response to the challenges of sovereignty.
Palestinian leaders preach nonstop hatred of Jews and continually incite murderous violence against them. Palestinian schools teach children of every age that suicide martyrdom must be their highest goal. These attitudes are deeply ingrained in their culture, and getting their own state wonít change them. In fact, any Palestinian state would almost certainly be taken over by Hamas, whose charter explicitly calls for the death of all Jews everywhere.
The government of Israel has evacuated Amona Ė Does the Left or the world like us any better? Do they respect us more? Isnít it better to apply the law in Judea and Samaria, to absorb exactly the same condemnations that we get in any case, but to do it to rescue the Land of Israel and Amona as part of it?

BenDedek originally created the site to publicize his research results into the Chronology of Ancient Israel. Those results were published under the title: 'The King's Calendar: The Secret of Qumran.' Whilst there have been many attempts to solve the chronological riddle of the Bible's synchronisms of reigns of the kings of Israel and Judah and their synchronism with other Ancient Near Eastern Nations, no other research is based on a simple mathematical formula which could, if it is incorrect, be disproved easily. To date, no one has been able to dismiss the mathematical results of this research.

Definition: King's Calendar Chronological Research
The Premise: Between the 5th and 3rd centuries BCE (but continuing down to at least 104 BCE), Sectarian redactors transcribed the legitimate 'solar year' chronological records of Israel and Judah, into an artificial form, with listed years as each comprised of 12 months of 4 weeks of 7 days, or 336 days per year, thus creating a 13th artificial year where 12 solar years existed.
When the Synchronous Chronological Data provided in the Books of Kings and Chronicles for the Divided Kingdom Period are measured in years of 336 days, the synchronisms actually align. [Refer to Appendix 5. to see how it synchronises the Divided Kingdom Period]
