"The only evacuation we are going to see in the near future in our area is the evacuation of Mr Olmert's government from our political scene. Therefore there is not going to be any be any evacuation. We did come here for any monetary incentives and we will not leave Judea and Samaria, the heart of our homeland, for any monetary compensation or incentive. Therefore it is a completely virtual discussion that is going to take place in the government. No one will leave for monetary reasons. We are here to stay. Judea and Samaria are part of our historic homeland and will remain so forever."

The Israeli cabinet on Sunday held its first discussion of legislation that would pay Jewish settlers to leave their homes in the West Bank even before a peace deal is signed with the Palestinians.
The bill is designed to help pave the way for a large pullback from the West Bank as part of a peace deal.
During Sunday's meeting, Senior Israeli Cabinet Minister, Haim Ramon, said results of his research concluded that thousands of Jewish settlers were ready to leave their homes in the West Bank voluntarily - if they receive compensation.
Ramon says about 62,000 Israelis live in isolated settlements likely to be uprooted under a peace deal. He says nearly one-fifth of them would leave immediately in exchange for compensation.
Last week Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said a peace agreement would require evacuating settlers and the country needed to "begin thinking about these issues."
But with Olmert stepping down to battle corruption allegations in the coming weeks, Ramon's legislation is unlikely to be passed by parliament any time soon.
A settler umbrella group has condemned the discussion, which was originally set to take place during last week's cabinet meeting, but was postponed.
"The only evacuation we are going to see in the near future in our area is the evacuation of Mr Olmert's government from our political scene," Settlers Representative, Danny Dayyan, told AP Television News in Jerusalem last week.
Dayan said the proposal was unacceptable and that his group would not agree to leave the West Bank under any terms.
"It is a completely virtual discussion that is going to take place in the government. No one will leave for monetary reasons. We are here to stay. Judea and Samaria are part of our historic homeland and will remain so forever," he said.
Israel evicted 8,500 settlers from the Gaza Strip and four small West Bank settlements in mid-2005.
Many settlers refused to plan for or cooperate with the operation.
A government watchdog has accused the government of poorly planning for the settlers after their evacuation, most significantly by not doing enough to move them into permanent housing from temporary quarters.
Meanwhile on Sunday Spanish Foreign Minister Miguel Angel Moratinos met with Israel President Shimon Peres.
The two discussed hopes of a peace deal being reached between Israel and the Palestinians by the end of the year.
Moratinos, a former European Union Mideast envoy, is on a six-day tour of the Middle East to boost ties and express support for peace in the region.
Spain prides itself on having a special relationship with Mideast countries and has tried to get the EU to make greater efforts toward peace in the region in recent years.
