Are the Jewish settlements in Judea and Samaria an obstacle to peace? Would the uprooting of these communities solve the Arab-Israeli conflict?

Jewish settlements have existed in Judea and Samaria, the cradle of Jewish civilization, since biblical times.

The region of Judea and Samaria was renamed the “West Bank” in April 1950 after it was illegally annexed by Jordan.

The land was liberated in 1967 during the Six-Day War of defense against invading Arab nations.

Indeed, the term “Jewish settlements” was coined by the Bible.

Ambassador Yoram Ettinger, an expert on US-Israel relations and Mideast affairs, provides an historical background and clear political analysis of the controversy concerning Jewish settlements in the ancient Jewish homeland.
