    24. And he (Omri) bought the mountain of Samaria from Shemer for two talents of silver; he built up the mountain and called the name of the city which he built, after the name of Shemer, the lord of the mountain, Samaria. 29. Now Ahab the son of Omri ruled over Israel, in the thirty-eighth year of Asa, king of Judah, and Ahab the son of Omri ruled over Israel in Samaria twenty-two years May Hashem give life with success to the settlers of Golan and Yesha builders of our Holy Lands of Judea with Samaria , Settlers build cities and make flourishing gardens from desolated landscapes. This the result of great toil and effort , and in many cases it involved genuine self sacrifice. Settlers transform swamp containing all sorts of disease into flourishing prime soil. The Holy one Blessed be He , desires Settlers deeds and Labor and is pleased with the settlers actions . May the Almighty Bless and multiply the settlers actions from success to success , R. Yoachanan says "...Omri deserves Kingship because he added on a city to the Land of Israel " (Sanhedrin 102b) , The Prophet Elijah says "..Omri had three of his descendants inherit his throne because he added a great city to the Land of Israel.." (Yalkut Shimoni 2:207) , Omri fulfiled the positive commandement of settling Eretz Yisrael , the mitzvah of adding a city to Eretz Yisrael rewarded Omri with three generations of Kingship , Omri fulfilled the mitzvah of Yeshuv Eretz Yisrael , "measure for measure" By constructing bulding and transforming the Land into a fertile soil , Settlers fulfill the essential component of the mitzvah of Yeshuv Eretz Yisrael , To cause settlements to grow and expand is thus good , for G'D is pleased and we benefit from settlers actions , The Jewish people are only a nation by virtue of the mitzvot of the Torah as it is written "This day you have become a people" ( Deuteronomy 27:9 , Devarim) , a concept of jewish nationalism is thus also in fulfilling the mitzvah of Yeshuv Eretz Yisrael , We must thus support the settlers and the settlements enterprise , especially in Judea with Samaria and of course the Golan , All are integral part of the mountains ranges of our Biblical Holy Land as Archeology proves , sealing with authenticity with valid , legal , lawfull claims our rich History no more confined to books , museums or websites but springs out to life in our Holy Land, mountains ranges cities , towns , villages , sites , ways of life . Deuteronomy 27:9 , Devarim ,Parshah: Ki Tavo 9. Moses and the Levitic priests spoke to all Israel, saying, "Pay attention and listen, O Israel! This day, you have become a people to the Lord, your G'D. 10. You shall therefore obey the Lord, your G'D, and fulfill His commandments and His statutes, which I command you this day. Consequently when Livni said.... not maximum Jewish settlement on the maximum amount of land" , FM Livni may have in mind some natural parks , hiking , horseback riding and hunting are economically good sport but given the context of FM Livni words , doubtfull is that FM Livni support the positive commandement of Yeshuv Eretz Yisrael , FM Livni statement sound good music to withdrawal's ears but it strangles natural Jewish settlements growth , life's quality and disconnect jews from their connection to their Homeland, FM Livni policy statements may be a cause to Sderot sky to look like iron and Sderot lands to like brass , causing the Jewish exile from arabs quassams rockets destroying Sderot ,
