Returning to the issue at hand, Zell said, "Trump will not tell Israel whether or no to build or annex. He will respect the Israeli government's decisions regarding Israel's future. This is a revolutionary policy.
..."With G-d's help, we built - in Judea and Samaria, in Gaza, in Jerusalem, in the Golan Heights. The settlements blossomed and grew. And now we have a change in Washington's policy, a change we never dreamed of. This is what we prayed for, but we never dreamed it would actually happen.
..."If Israel decides to expand the current settlements in Judea and Samaria, Washington would accept that. I'm not saying they'll love it. But yes, they will respect it. And that's a huge thing.
..."So I'm not criticizing what was or was not done before January 20. But after January 20, it's a different world.
"Trump's decision to respect Israel's decisions has a flip side: For the first time since the Six Day War, Israel needs to decide what its interests and strategy are in all of Israel: Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, the Golan - and even Gaza. What do we want, and what will we decide about our fate?
"It's in our hands now, and we need to decide. We are at an historic moment in time, a moment we never dreamed of. We have a golden opportunity to erase the damage caused over so many years and to strengthen our Zionist enterprise.
"I don't know if Washington supports sovereignty or not, but they will respect us and our decision. It's time our leaders decided Israel belongs to the Jews," he concluded.
