Under the slogan "Instead of destruction - expansion," dozens of Hilltop Youths flocked to several hilltops in Judea and Samaria on Wednesday and established six new illegal outposts in clear defiance of Prime Minister Ariel Sharon. The youths, part of a new movement called "Youths for the Land of Israel," laid ground for what they said would be new neighborhoods in the settlements of Efrat in Gush Etzion, Kiryat Arba near Hebron and the Samaria settlements of Elon Moreh and Kedumim. "This is only the beginning," declared Arik Yitzhaki - a Gush Katif evacuee and head of the Kela Authority which worked to infiltrate anti-disengagement activists into the sealed-off settlement bloc before the evacuation in August. "We lost the battle in Gaza but the fight over the land of Israel is still ahead of us." Yitzhaki said that the movement numbered some 2,000 youths between 17 and 20 years old most of whom infiltrated Gush Katif prior to disengagement and participated in the resistance to the evacuation.
