Right-wing activists Baruch Marzel and Rabbi Sholom Dov Wolpo declared on Monday the founding of a new party – Eretz Israel Shelanu (Our Land of Israel) that will run for Knesset in the upcoming general elections.
"Our entire existence here is being challenged – can we survive the wrongdoings inflicted on us by the leadership?" asked Wolpo, who also heads SOS Israel, an organization dedicated to fighting any peace accords that involve land concessions.
At a press conference in Jerusalem the two also slammed the Habayit Hayehudi party for failing to genuinely represent their constituency and oppose settlement evacuation.
"We are facing a true existential threat and plan to sacrifice ourselves, our money and everything we have for the nation of Israel and the land of Israel," said Marzel, adding that "Habayit Hayehudi is a farce."
"These are politically-motivated investigations aimed at stopping me from running for Knesset," Wolpo claimed Monday.
