The Case for Israeli Sovereignty over the entire Judea and Samaria

Israeli control over Judea and Samaria since 1967 has pacified the eastern front and removed strategic military threats against Gush Dan (Metropolitan Tel Aviv) and Jerusalem, Israel’s capital. Israeli control over Judea and Samaria turned Israel into a strategic asset for the United States as Israel became a beacon of stability in the region since Israel has not been attacked by neighboring states since 1973 due to its strategic control over Judea and Samaria. Israeli control over Judea and Samaria crucially offers Israeli population centers essential strategic depth, a factor that brings stability to the entire region.

The Israeli strategists who devised the very strategically placed restored indigenous communities of Judea and Samaria, commonly known as “the settlements” which ensure Israel topographic ability to defend itself counted on the Palestinian fertility rate eventually falling and ultimately Haredim becoming the demographic majority throughout the entire western Land of Israel. Successive Israeli governments have been careful not to harm Haredi society so as not to harm its revolutionary Jewish growth rate. It turned out that these 1970s Israeli strategic planners were absolutely right about their projections, forecasts, expectations and plans. Jewish and Palestinian fertility rates have reached a temporary equilibrium at about 3 children on average per woman – the Palestinian fertility rate is falling and the Jewish fertility rate is rising.

With the revolutionary growth in Israel’s Haredi population was Judea and Samaria projected to be formally incorporated – redeemed and enfranchised – into Israel probably sometime in the 2040s but with the historical discovery of Median Judaism and the prospects of millions of Median Jewish immigrants to Israel can this certainly happen much earlier. 

Who are the indigenous population of Judea and Samaria? Jews and Samaritans are certainly indigenous and while historically endogamous Palestinian clans of Jewish and Samaritan ancestry respectively are descended from indigenous people (like the Mestizos in Latin America are descended from indigeneous peoples), they are however no longer part of the indigenous Jewish and indigenous Samaritan peoples (just like no one considers the Mestizos as indigenous anymore). Like indigenous peoples everywhere do the indigenous Jews in Judea and Samaria face comprehensive delegitimization of their ancestral claims to their indigenous lands. Jews have lived in the land of Israel for four millennia. It is very common for indigenous peoples to consider their indigenous lands as “sacred” and Israeli Jews are just one of numerous indigenous peoples worldwide living on their own “sacred land”.
