Jewish Settlers Call to Topple Gov’t

Leaders within the Jewish settler communities began a campaign to topple the current government. The heads of the Yesha Council — an umbrella organization of municipalities of Jewish settlements in Judea & Samaria — claim that the move was prompted by the government’s decision to “freeze” Jewish construction in the area, while mostly ignoring any illegal Arab construction. They also claim that the Ministry of Defense is aggressively dismantling illegal outposts of Jewish settlers, while handing over more land to Palestinian control. There have been weekly demonstrations in front of Prime Minister Bennett’s residence in central Israel over the issue. Please pray for wisdom for Israeli officials in this situation. Please also pray that the government will effectively address the issue and not turn a blind eye. Lastly, please pray that a mutually satisfactory policy will be settled on regarding construction in disputed territories.
