Rabbi of Beit El and prominent national-religious leader, Rabbi Zalman Baruch Melamed, issued a public letter on Wednesday calling for a “decisive struggle” over the pending evacuation of the Ulpana outpost on the outskirts to Beit El.

“We call on the entire public and on MKs of the Land of Israel Faithful [lobby] to join in this decisive struggle with dedication and sacrifice,” the Rabbi wrote in a short missive sent to the press.

Officials from the Prime Minister’s Office have made efforts of late to reach out to the influential Melamed in order to ensure a peaceful evacuation of the outpost.

In his letter, Melamed cited Rabbi Avrhama Yitzhak Hacohen Kook, the spiritual founder of the national-religious movement, quoting him as saying “It is upon every Jew faithful to Israel to stand with complete and utter self-sacrifice against the abandonment of the smallest part of the land of our life and the deliverance of it into the hands of non-Jews.”
