Israel Should Build Much, Much More in the ‘West Bank’

Unfortunately, Israel is still dominated by Jews who are insecure in our success as a legitimate country.

Israel is a very tiny country with impressive immigration statistics.  At sixty-five years, compared to most United Nations member countries, it’s not all that new.  In terms of actual history, culture and more it’s definitely one of the most ancient countries on earth.  The State of Israel descends from the Ancient Jewish People with a long continuous, well-documented history.  I live in Shiloh, the original Capital of the Jewish Land/Nation.  Jews have returned here from all over the world, and we’re building lives and homes.

Unfortunately, Israel is still dominated by Jews who are insecure in our success as a legitimate country and continuously pander to those who want to destroy us. 1391533_10202345476101054_830370746_n Instead of just going on with full confidence and sovereignty in all of the Land of Israel we have under control, they keep on begging the world to recognize our rights and offering valuable gifts of Land to the Arab terrorists who want to destroy us.  That’s why Israel gets so much international flack and criticism for building homes for Jews in Land we won in a terribly aggressive war to destroy us.  The world still hasn’t forgiven our victory. Most countries would have happily built and supported memorials for the Holocaust and the destroyed State of Israel.  They prefer celebrating Jewish deaths rather than supporting vibrant Jewish Life. 1236399_10201983273966227_905914512_n The State of Israel keeps trying the same failed technique to get a “Peace agreement” with the Arabs. Such a thing will never be for two simple reasons.  The Arabs will never agree to a treaty promising the State of Israel a true peace, and whatever “interim” agreement is signed will be violated by the Arabs.  This is what always happens, like a Law of Physics.  We have to constantly be on the alert and not project our good peaceful nature and customs onto Arabs.  Stories like the Arab Egged bus driver spy should be a lesson.  Naivete is a dangerous enemy. 562943_10202226551968025_1729151303_n The only way for us to have peace is to build all over the Land of Israel.  I was recently in the town of Adam, just north of Jerusalem.

It has land prepared for building in the direction of Ma’ale Adumim.

One of the major issues of the recent economic protests in Israel has been housing prices.  The best areas to build in are davka in locations like Shiloh, Adam, Ariel, Gush Etzion etc which are close enough to Israel’s major cities for easy commuting and already have successful and viable social, educational, economic and industrial infrastructures.

Building freezes won’t bring Israel security, but building will.

  1. Building freezes is questionable, this is a corrupt goverment making money for few by selling with high prices.

  2. Anonymous says:

    Those voices complaining about Jews building in Judea and Samaria are illegitimate. If Arab/ Moslem squatters can build any where they want to, then why can't Jews? When you add this bias to the complete silence about the daily Arab/ Moslem terrorist attacks, the 24/7 hatemongering and incitement to violence, and the screeching threats to Israel's existence from the surrounding Arab/ Moslem regimes, a pattern emerges. This grotesque hypocrisy and bigoted double standard is all about trying to undermine Israel's right to exist and her ability to defend herself. To those anti-Semites screaming at Israel to stop building on her land, we should say loudly, "Only when you call off your war of annihilation against Israel."
