First, I object to the term settlement. Jews lived there before Israel was re-created. Jews arent new to the area. Second, as proof in Gaza, when Israel left, Gazans launched hundreds of (now thousands) of missles at civilians in Israel. They dont do that from Judea and Samaria. You are lying to yourself if you think these fake peace agreements with egypt and Jordan Palestine makes it safer for Israel. 3rd, if the Arabs were serious about peace they would be negotiating for it, not complaining for decades. They would allow Jews to remain and negotiate borders, not populations. Lastly, they would have created another Arab Palestinian state from 48-67. They dont want one. They want a land without Jews. This isnt peace, its racism!
