Former Shiloh Israel Mayor David Rubin is available for American Talk Shows on his statement as follows:
According to Secretary of State John Kerry (speaking yesterday at the Saban Forum, hosted by the left-leaning Brookings Institute)
“There’s a basic choice that has to be made by Israelis – by the leadership of Israel. By all of you who support and care about Israel. Are there going to be continued settlements – continued implementation of settlement policy – or separation and the creation of two states?”
According to David Rubin, founder and president of Shiloh Israel Children’s Fund, “There are no settlements, only rebuilt biblical heartland communities. Since the Six Day War of 1967, when Israel recaptured the historic regions of Samaria and Judea, the so-called West Bank, we have been rebuilding our country. Despite the unfortunately ignorant statements of Secretary Kerry, that process will continue.”
Several Talking Points:
- When and how did the West Bank fall into Israel’s hands?
- When we talk about “the settlements”, what are we actually referring to?
- Why does Secretary Kerry call the settlements “an obstacle to peace”?
- Who are “the settlers”?
- Can you tell us about Shiloh, where you live, and why it’s so important, as well as controversial?
- How and why did you establish Shiloh Israel Children’s Fund?
- How will the Jewish communities in Samaria and Judea be affected by President-Elect Donald Trump’s choice of Secretary of State?
