Eretz Yisrael (The Land of Israel) was the birthplace of the Jewish people. Here their spiritual, religious and national identity was formed. Here they achieved independence and created a culture of national and universal significance. Here they wrote and gave the Hebrew Bible to the world.
Exiled from Eretz Yisrael, the Jewish people remained faithful to it in all the countries of their dispersion, never ceasing to pray and hope for their national freedom, their return and restoration of HaShem’s [and David’s] Kingdom within their Homeland, Eretz Yisrael.
Impelled by this historic association, Jews remained steadfast in Eretz Yisrael and Jews strove throughout the centuries to go back to the land of their fathers and regain statehood. In recent decades, they returned in their masses to Judea and Shomron after liberating it from foreign Islamic dominion. The Tzionist movement reclaimed a wilderness, revived their language, built cities and villages, and established a vigorous and ever-growing community, with its own economic and cultural life. They sought peace, yet were ever prepared to defend themselves. They brought blessings of progress to all inhabitants of the country.
In the year 1897 the first Zionist Congress, inspired by Theodore Herzl’s vision of a Jewish state, proclaimed the right of the Jewish people to a national revival in their own country.
This right was acknowledged by the Balfour Declaration of November 2, 1917, and reaffirmed by the Mandate of the League of Nations, as well as by the Anglo-American Treaty of 1924 which gave explicit international recognition to the historic connection of the Jewish people with Eretz-Yisrael and their right to reconstitute their national home as agreed to in the Faisal-Weizmann Agreement.
The Nazi holocaust which engulfed millions of Jews in Europe proved anew the urgency of the re-establishment of the Jewish state, which would solve the problem of Jewish homelessness by opening the gates to all Jews and lifting the Jewish people to equality in the family of nations.
Survivors of the European catastrophe as well as Jews from other lands, claiming their right to a life of dignity, freedom and labor, and undeterred by hazards, hardships and obstacles, tried unceasingly to enter Eretz-Yisrael.
In the Second World War, the Jewish people in Eretz-Yisrael made a full contribution in the struggle of freedom-loving nations against the Nazi evil. The sacrifices of their soldiers and efforts of their workers gained them title to rank with the people who founded the United Nations. On November 29, 1947, the General Assembly of United Nations adopted a resolution for re-establishment of an independent Jewish state in Palestine and called upon inhabitants of the country to take such steps as may be necessary on their part to put the plan into effect.
U.N. RECOGNIZED RIGHT OF JEWISH PEOPLE TO SET UP STATE
This recognition by the United Nations of the right of the Jewish people to establish their independent state may not be revoked. It is, moreover, the self-evident right of the Jewish people to be a nation, as all other nations, in its own sovereign state. In declaring State-hood, (the State of Israel) the Jewish people have forged their imprint on the stage of world history.
After unsuccessful efforts to forge peace with our Arab neighbors, via the Oslo Accords and the Arab rejectionism of the Tzionist State (of Israel), the Jewish body politic of Judea, Shomron/Samaria, Gad, Menasheh and Reuven hereby declare our total independence from the State of Israel, and;
Accordingly, the members of Privy King’s Council, representing the Jewish people in Eretz-Yisrael (Judea, Shomron/Samaria, Gad, Menasheh and Reuven) and the Zionist movement of the world, will meet together in solemn assembly in Y’rushalayim by virtue of the natural and historic right of Jewish people and by virtue of treaty law (to wit, the Treaties of Versailles and Sevres together with the San Remo Resolution) and by virtue of the Faisal-Weizmann Agreement:
Hereby proclaim the establishment of the Jewish Kingdom in Judea, Shomron/Samaria, Gad, Menasheh and Reuven, Eretz Yisrael, to be called (HaShem’s Kingdom) the Kingdom of Eretz Yisrael.
We hereby declare (nunc pro tunc) that as from the termination of the Mandate at midnight the night of the 14th to 15th of May, 1948 and until the setting up of duly-elected bodies of the Kingdom in accordance with the Constitution of Judea and Shomron/Samaria published on or about 16 June 2019, the present King’s Council shall act as the Privy King’s Council, its executive organ, the National Sanhedrin, shall constitute the Provisional Government of the Kingdom of Eretz Yisrael.
The Kingdom of Eretz-Yisrael will promote the development of the country for the benefit of all its inhabitants; will be based on precepts of liberty, justice and peace taught by the Hebrew prophets; will uphold the full social and political equality of all its citizens without distinction of race, creed or sex; will guarantee full freedom of conscience, worship, education and culture; will safeguard the sanctity and inviolability of shrines and holy places of all legitimate religions; and will dedicate itself to the principles of the Charter of the United Nations.
The Kingdom of Eretz-Yisrael will be ready to cooperate with the organs and representatives of the United Nations in the implementation of the San Remo Resolution and the Anglo-American Treaty of 1924, and will take steps to bring about an economic and political union over the whole of Eretz Yisrael in political alliance with the State of Israel.
We appeal to the United Nations to assist the Jewish people in the building of its Kingdom and admit the Kingdom of Eretz-Yisrael into the family of nations.
In the midst of wanton aggression we call upon the Arab inhabitants of the Kingdom of Eretz-Yisrael to return to the ways of peace and play their part in the development of the Kingdom, with full and equal residency and due representation in all its bodies and institutions, provisional or permanent.
We offer peace and amity to all neighboring states and their peoples, and invite them to co-operate with the independent Jewish nation for the common good of all. The Kingdom of Eretz-Yisrael is ready to contribute its full share to the peaceful progress and reconstitution of the Middle East. Our call goes out to the Jewish people all over the world to rally to our side in the task of immigration and development, and to stand by us in the great struggle for the fulfillment of the dream of generations — the redemption of Eretz Yisrael.
With trust in Almighty God, we set our hand to this declaration at this session of the Privy King’s Council for the Eternal City of Y’rushalayim and the Kingdom of Eretz-Yisrael this, the 1st day of Thammuz, 5779 the fourth day of July, 2019.
