As long as there are Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria, the State of Israel is safer and its economy is more stable." That claim is complete garbage. You don't need COLONISTS, you only need the presence of IDF SOLDIERS. This is precisely what is wrong with Israel's argument i.e. it is the OCCUPATION that imposes Israeli authority upon the West Bank, not the COLONIZATION of that occupied territory. Indeed, the latter detracts from the former, precisely because it gives a lie to the claim that this occupation is all about "security", rather than being about "colonial expansionism".
