According to Israeli Communications Minister Tzachi Hanegbi, the State of Israel was founded in 1948, but its origins and moral right to land go back to the origins of history, based on "The Bible and not on Google and Wikipedia"" page (in French).
Cis in these terms that Tzachi Hanegbi spoke to the participants of the celebrations of “50 years of the rejuvenation of Judea and Samaria”, commemorating the restoration of the territories of “Greater Israel” after the Six Day War of 1967. This lightning war between Israel and Egypt, Syria and Jordan, had enabled the very young State of Israel to triple its territory in less than a week. “Greater Israel” refers to the Land Promised to the Children of Israel, which stretches “from the River of Egypt to the Euphrates”. Israel later returned Gaza and Sinai. For the Minister, speaking for the Breibart, this defensive war was fair:
“It was a just war. It was a fair defense. But most importantly, it was based on a just claim […] A just demand from the Jewish people on [the biblical areas of] Beit El, Shechem, Jerusalem and Hebron… Let me tell you something , if these places are not Jewish, who can tell me that [the modern cities of] Herzliya, Rehovot, Rishon Lezion and Tel Aviv are Jewish. "
For this minister, the occupation is a myth, “because we have never occupied the land of other people”.
“The most important thing is Israel's moral claim… We are committed to moving forward with life in our ancient land, the land given to us, not by Google and Wikipedia, but by the Bible. . King David, King Saul, King Solomon, Abraham. This is a right and we will demand our right forever. "
Mr. Hanegbi's statements were supported by Housing Minister Yoav Galant:
“For us Judea and Samaria are Israel. "
