Yesha Council to Olmert: Ditch W. Bank withdrawal

The council of Judea, Samaria and Gaza (Yesha) called on Acting Prime Minister Ehud Olmert on Friday morning to abandon his West Bank withdrawal plan and to focus on ensuring the safety of Israel's citizens. "This painful terror attack [in Kedumim] makes it very clear that Olmert needs to establish a government that will fight terror in the West Bank and Gaza and will not give in to Palestinian demands by withdrawing from the West Bank," said a Yesha spokesman.
