On Sunday 26th September, thousands of Likud supporters spent the day touring around the various different historic sites within the region of Samaria as part of an event initiated by MK Danny Danon (Likud) and organized by World Likud, so to show their solidarity and support for all the settlements in Judea and Samaria, as well as to symbolize the significance of the end of the previous 10 months building freeze within the region.
In the morning over 50 buses of Likud members from all over Israel and abroad, departed to visit such fascinating sites such as Shiloh, Elon Moreh, Har Bracha and numerous spectacular observation points. At 3pm, MK Danny Danon and the Head of the Samaria Regional Council Chair, Gershon Mesika, laid a stone to symbolize the commencement of a new kindergarten in Kiryat Netafim near Ariel. After this formal ceremony, tractors and concrete mixers began to work to build the new kindergarten, before the evening’s celebration ceremony.

On September 26th, the building freeze in the settlements will end at exactly 6:06 p.m. Likud MK Danny Danon says the second this time is reached, they will break ground in Judea and Samaria. He will not allow the opponents to extend the freeze any longer than they already have.
Danon told the Jerusalem Post that “opponents of the freeze are already planning a large ceremony in Samaria for that moment, complete with tractors that will break ground for new homes.”
In addition to Danny Danon of Likud, the heads of political parties such as, Yisrael Beitenu, Shas, United Torah Judaism and Habayit Hayehudi have always been strongly opposed to extending the freeze later than September 26th. They believe the settlements of Judea and Samaria are key to Israel’s independence and that Israel must maintain it’s position regarding these areas.

The most crucial and controversial resolutions achieved were regarding settlement policies. The Convention discussed the main ideological aspects of the Zionist movement. The participants were divided into three main committees, Policy and Settlement, Education, Aliyah and Absorption, and Israel Advocacy and Anti-Semitism. World Likud takes a strong stance against the claim that there is no value in settling the entirety of the land of Israel. As a result of the convention, World Likud declared its support of the settlers in Judea and Samaria and called upon the government to continue building in the lands of our forefathers. Ultimately, World Likud wants to launch a huge publicity campaign for supporters of Likud within Jewish communities and begin performing tours within these settlements.
The following are some of the main declarations made by World Likud at the 5th Annual Convention:

CEO of World Likud, Rafael Cohen, had a lengthy discussion with Mr. Schwartzberger about how to strengthen the connection between the World Likud chapters in Argentina and Israel. Both representatives strongly believe in reinforcing the connection between Zionist Likudniks around the world, resulting in an even stronger World Likud.

My name is Leone Sonnino, born in Rome June 24th, 1924. I come from a Jewish family who lived in the ghetto of Rome.
Question: When did you first realized that being Jew meant something special?
Answer: When, in 1938, the racial laws were promulgated in Italy by the Fascist regime led by Benito Mussolini. At that moment, I knew perfectly well what it meant to be a Jew in a foreign land. When these laws were promulgated, as it happened to the Jews in all countries occupied by the Nazi-Fascists, we lost all our rights. Later, in 1943, following the armistice with the Allied troops and the subsequent German occupation of Italy, I was forced to hide in the mountains to escape deportation to concentration camps. I met partisans, Americans and other Jews fleeing the cities. Since June 1944, with the liberation of Rome by the Allies I could return to Rome. In those days I met the boys of the Palestinian Brigade who were enlisted with the British army and contributed to the liberation of Rome. For me it was a joy to see young Jews which proudly showed the Star of David on their uniforms. A symbol that until a few days before was used to distinguish us from the others in order to be easily identified and caught.
