Restorative Indigenous Construction is Rational

There has long been an assumption in the international community that the restorative indigenous construction project in Judea and Samaria is the result of excessive nationalism of politically conservative Revisionist Zionism and rightwing Modern Orthodox Religious Zionism. It has not been understood that the restorative indigenous communities were not founded at random but are a strategic project of the Israeli state designed with three final status maps in mind. 1) Israel redemption and annexation of the entire Judea and Samaria when the demographic size of the Jewish population in Israel so permits, 2) Jordanian annexation of most Palestinian-inhabited areas of Judea and Samaria and 3) the establishment of a Palestinian state without a border with Jordan. 

The indigenous restoration project and the Oslo maps were all deliberately devised to keep all three options open. Option #1 is the main option for which the project was devised in anticipation of the eventual result of the Haredi population explosion in Israel. Option #2 was the main reserve option should option #1 fail to become realistic were the Haredi fertility rate to drastically fall and were the Palestinian fertility rate not to continue to fall. Option #3 is the least favored option but the restorative indigenous construction project was nevertheless devised to keep this option open albeit not with anywhere near the borders demanded by the rejectionist Palestinian Authority in its official so-called “negotiation position”. Under all three partition maps would Israel keep all indigenous communities established in Judea and Samaria.

Restorative indigenous construction is a vital Israeli national security interest in order to cement Israeli control over all restorative indigenous communities in Judea and Samaria and strategically prevent a return to the pre-1967 Auschwitz lines within which Israel could only defend itself through preemptive war. The Gaza strip was originally intended to be annexed by Israel as well but the Palestinian fertility rate did not fall as rapidly as expected and this plan was therefore shelved and hence the 2005 disengagement from Gaza. 

The restorative indigenous construction project in Judea and Samaria is designed to prevent war being waged from Judea and Samaria against Israeli whether through a) rocket/missile terrorism against Israel cities, b) the reopening of the eastern front were the Jordanian Hashemites to fall from power or c) the importation of major military forces from Ant-Zionist major powers such as Algeria, Iran, Malaysia and Pakistan into Judea and Samaria. In either case would Israel be forced to reoccupy all Palestinian areas of Judea and Samaria and hence was option #3 always mainly hypothetical since it is extremely unlikely that the Palestinian movement within the foreseeable future will reconcile itself with the existence of the indigenous Jewish nation state.

The Israeli strategy was always to continue building in Judea and Samaria until the issue can be resolved through either of the three options although option #1 was always the default option. With the historical rediscovery of core Median Judaism and core Median Jewry has option #1 become the sole option as option #2 and option #3 are now completely out of the question. There are tens of millions of Median Jews in the Middle East and around the world with the largest concentration being in Turkey and Median Jewish mass Aliyah (immigration) to Israel will enable Israel to apply sovereignty over the entire Judea and Samaria many decades sooner than expected. The Jordanian monarchy will be more than happy to annex Gaza after Israel’s full incorporation of the entire Judea and Samaria, and Gaza will be connected to the East Bank through a road and railroad underground connection under the Negev desert.

The international community needs to internalize that option #2 and option #3 are now completely out of the question although they were never preferred options to begin with due to existential reasons of military strategy. The return to the land of Israel of the genetic and spiritual descendants of the ten Israelite tribes as deported from the Northern Kingdom of Israel and the subsequent Israeli redemption and enfranchisement of Judea and Samaria is the only realistic option for resolving this matter.
