What’s More Dangerous: Iran Arming Terrorists in Judea-Samaria or Israel Building Homes for Jews There?
Iran is arming terrorists in Judea and Samaria aka “the west bank” sic. Have you seen world leaders, the United Nations etc condemning this?
Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei declared last month that the “events in Gaza” lead Iran to believe that the West Bank should be armed just like Gaza, and action must be taken in this direction.2
On the other hand, the news here is full of foreign condemnation of Israel for re-zoning empty land in Gush Etzion which will, G-d willing be used for Jewish housing.
UN chief Ban condemns Israeli decision regarding West Bank area known as Gva’ot”The Secretary-General is alarmed by yesterday’s announcement by Israeli authorities to declare as so-called ‘state land’ nearly 1,000 acres of land in the Bethlehem area of the West Bank,” the UN chief’s office said in a statement. “The seizure of such a large swathe of land risks paving the way for further settlement activity, which – as the United Nations has reiterated on many occasions – is illegal under international law and runs totally counter to the pursuit of a two-state solution.” (Jerusalem Post)
and the UK
UK ‘Deplores’ Israel Declaring State Land in Judea”The UK deplores the Israeli government’s expropriation of 988 acres of land around the settlement of Etzion,” British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond said in a statement. Hammond further threatened “this is a particularly ill-judged decision that comes at a time when the priority must be to build on the ceasefire in Gaza. It will do serious damage to Israel’s standing in the international community.” (Arutz 7)
and don’t forget the USA
Israel claims West Bank land for possible settlement use, draws U.S. rebuke”We urge the government of Israel to reverse this decision,” a State Department official said in Washington, calling the move “counterproductive” to efforts to achieve a two-state solution between Israel and the Palestinians.

It’s time for the State of Israel and Jews all over the world to accept that the world cares more for the fiction of “Palestine,”(sic) than Jewish rights in our Holy Land. It doesn’t matter what we do and how we do it. They’re like a famished carnivorous animal that won’t let that meaty bone, the so-called “two state solution,” out of their mouths.
There’s only one thing for us, the State of Israel to do and that’s to go “cold turkey” and admit that our support for a Palestinian sic state was a terrible mistake. We must refuse to continue any negotiations, and we must officially consider the P.A. as Israel’s enemy and roll back the privileges it had been granted. Granted that this won’t be easy, but the alternative is much, much worse!Batya Medad
