At a meeting of the Eretz Yisrael Shelanu [our land of Israel] movement with representatives of Noar Hagvaot [hilltop youths], a decision was taken to start a campaign against the Shas party, because it has decided to abstain in a vote about the construction freeze in the Occupied Palestinian Territories. Meeting participants said that the Shas leaders were “engaged in acts of treason” and that “there is a duty to protest against them.” Rabbi Shalom Dov Wolfa said at the meeting that “we’ve got to remind the Shas people and the ones responsible for handing over territories that there are laws and there are judges, and that they will pay for this crime.” (Hebrew)
