  • President Rivlin: We Came to Israel Out of the Understanding that This Is Our Land – Tovah Lazaroff
    Israeli President Reuven Rivlin visited an elementary school in the community of Peduel in Samaria to help celebrate the first day of classes on Tuesday. Located 4.5 km. east of the 1967 line (the Green Line) and 25 km. east of Tel Aviv, Rivlin said the hilltop community has come to symbolize Israel’s historical and geographical connection, from the sea to the hilltops, from the past to the future. “It connects the biblical kingdom of Israel with the modern state,” he said. “Those who live here know that we will never again lend our hand to the dissolution of Jewish sovereignty.”
    “We did not come to Israel because we fled the Holocaust or pogroms, we came and we will continue to settle it out of happiness and joy and the understanding that this is our land,” said the president. “Every stone and tree tells a story. The geography, much like the archeology of Samaria, is like the photographs of a family album. Those who live here live in the middle of a lesson in history, in Bible, in citizenship and love of the land. But the most important lesson learned here is one of unity,” Rivlin said.
