In sum, the length and breadth of Judah, Benjamin, Ephraim, and west Menasheh are steeped in four millennia of Jewish history, religion, culture, and civilization – ongoing in the present day and into the future. Forsaking these regions would mean disintegrating Jewish identity and disavowing Jewish heritage.

  1. It is like what Kosovo is to the Serbian people, and today Serbians only make up 5% of Kosovo's population. Today Muslims make up 75% of the West Bank's population. There will never be a Jewish majority in the West Bank, but one of the options is, if there is an independent Palestine, let the Israeli settlers stay there and become citizens of Palestine. It is not any different than Israel having an Arab minority. But the Palestinian Authority will have to drop this unwritten clause that Palestine is to be Jew-free. Because it is just as unrealistic as Israel annexing Judea and Samaria.

  2. At first glance the Wahabi Muslim decision to destroy one of their oldest mosque, the mosque of Medina seems like complete lunacy.

    These theologians are concerned that the people’s veneration for the ancient buildings associated with Mohamed is idol worship, not worshiping G-d.

    There is a great element of truth to this madness.

    After the tremendous trauma of Jewish history, Jews cling to their historical sites and ruins.

    I also have tremendous attachment to them.

    But as I understand the counsel of many rabbis, the question of how to deal with the status of the future of these lands was decided entirely on the question of are the Arabs really willing to trade land for peace. These rabbis mostly decided the answer was no.

    Even if that verdict is correct, practical considerations such as the alliance with the US should be weighed before building a Jewish city in Scechem, for example.

    Any further settlements in the heart of Samaria or other mostly Arab areas diminishes the future of Jewish Jerusalem and other areas near the green line.

  4. We should not give up these lands. We do not care about Arabs, whether they want us to live there or not. They have 22 other countries and there were thousand of jewish refugees that were forced to leave Egypt and Jordan.
