There is a battle for the Land of Israel that is going on today – in broad daylight. There are no dangerous weapons being used in this battle. It is a battle of young Israeli shepherds and well-funded Arab land grabbers with tractors. This is a battle that is often overlooked by the news outlets, but it is a grueling battle over the Land of Israel.
One day, Israel will declare that most of the Lands in Judea and Samaria are part of the sovereign State of Israel. But until that point comes, the tug of war over the Land continues. The young Israeli shepherds are actually demonized by most of Israeli society because they mostly reject the entire concept of the State of Israel not allowing Israeli Jews to settle anywhere in the State of Israel. On the other hand, the Israeli authorities turn a blind eye to Arab encroachment like the one seen in this video. The young Israeli shepherds are absolutely right. Selective enforcement of law against one group and not another should be frowned upon.
But in truth, the main solution to this on-going battle is that Israel – once and for all – declare that they are the sovereign of their own country – in all of the Lands of Judea and Samaria. But, in the Arab cities and towns, the Arabs should continue to have their own autonomous, non-militarized self-rule. As long as Israel never gives up any bit of the security side and makes sure that no group in their midst is amassing weapons, Israel should allow the Arab minority to run their own lives. But, the Lands Administration needs to stop making believe that Arab land-grabbing is a non-issue. It is a constant issue that will only be solved when Israel declares full sovereignty over Judea and Samaria.
