How Israeli Settlements Became ‘Illegal’


JewishPress Logo

When Israel withdrew from the Gaza Strip in 2005, it became a bastion of Hamas. “Land for Peace” in reality means “Land for Terrorism.”

Others contend that Israel’s Jewish and democratic nature will be threatened if it continues to include large numbers of Arabs who are not loyal and do not identify with the state. But nearly all Palestinian Arabs live under PA, not Israeli rule. The dispute now, therefore, is over territory, not people.

That a second (or third) Arab Palestinian state would be an existential threat to Israel seems obvious. “Land for peace” has failed. Why then promote it?
