Letter from the Directorate for Political and National Guidance

The racial policy adopted by the Netanyahu government continues, especially on the level of refraining from carrying out signed agreements, and the delay and procrastination and time gaining, in order to swallow many Palestinian lands and to requisition them and to establish on them cancerous settlements.

Ten years have passed, during which our people and leaders have experienced the most terrible wars, while fighting on all fronts to take their rights from the oppressive occupation. The war of weapons is one of the most terrible wars that our people have experienced during our huge Palestinian revolution against the arrogant enemy who adopts delay and procrastination and the reversing of the facts. Despite all this, our people still adheres to its rights, and stands firm against the unjust and extreme stubbornness of the government of occupation under the leadership of Netanyahu.

The Samaritans, who comprise the smallest religious community in the world, say that the real Judaism opposes the Israeli Zionism. Likewise, they consider themselves original Palestine residents since the ancient eras.
