Since the peace treaties with Egypt and Jordan, there has been no significant political decision • Despite this, in Israel in general and in settlement in particular - know nothing • Opinion
In recent weeks, the Yesha Council has been working around the clock. Together with the heads of the councils, we are moving from minister to minister and MK to MK from all the factions in order to present the problematic map of the century plan. Appears as an appendix in President Trump's "Century Plan" document.

To our delight, elected officials understand the problem. They see the red areas that would be possible borders for a Palestinian state, they see the isolated communities and the access roads that lead to them, the areas where there will be at least four years freeze, and the roads that will pave the way for Palestinians in the new state.
It is clear to everyone that obtaining the map as presented in the Century Plan is very problematic for the continued development of Israeli settlement in Judea, Samaria and the Jordan Valley.
Increasing rifts in the national camp around sovereignty: "irresponsible Yesha leadership"
"In Israel and the US Determined: Sovereignty - Until September"
Everything you wanted to know about applying sovereignty
Jewish history will not forgive those who thwart the application of sovereignty opinion
Recent voices say that the map we hold and present to Knesset members is not the right map. In their view, the Israeli-American mapping team has not yet completed the work on the map, and it is not yet known what the final map will look like.
This is a frightening situation. In less than three weeks, the prime minister can begin to accelerate the process of applying sovereignty and entering into negotiations with the Palestinian Authority. The State of Israel is facing one of the greatest events in its short history. Since the peace treaty with Egypt or with Jordan, there has not been such a significant political decision that its implications for state borders are so great. Nevertheless, the public in Israel in general, and in particular, does not know anything about its details.
For nearly two years, and more specifically in the last four months, the mapping team has been working in the field. His work was exposed a little on a rainy winter together with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and US Ambassador David Friedman in the city of Ariel. The rain is over, but the mapping team, it is said repeatedly, has not yet completed its work.
Surveys conducted in the media this past week show that Israeli society, and the right, in itself, oppose the establishment of a Palestinian state. A situation where the government passes the century plan without the public sharing information is a serious problem.
It's time to reveal things. First and foremost for the settlement heads, whose implications the map brings are unprecedented. And then, but no less important, for the Israeli public as well. It is also a call for journalists and media people, you who research every story in depth and always try to expose the public to the smallest details - do not fall asleep on guard. Ask to reveal the whole truth.
