The International Community Need not Worry About Legalization

This of course is a time when many in the international community are worried about the long overdue legalization of unauthorized outposts constructed on public lands in Area C of Judea and Samaria. These outposts lie between authorized indigenous Israeli communities. These are areas which were always intended to become part of sovereign Israel. Of course with mass Aliyah of tens of millions of Median Jews from the Middle East and beyond will Israel apply sovereignty to the entire Judea and Samaria, including Area B and Area A and grant Israeli citizenship to the Palestinian population living there. However, the notion that Israel would uproot indigenous Israeli communities built on public lands in order to create a terrorist state is a fantasy that never had any foundation in reality. This was never a possibility as Israeli intelligence knew Barak’s and Olmert’s offers or for that matter any other final status offer from the Israeli government would be rejected out of hand by the PLO Negotiation Department since the PA is simply not interested in a final status agreement and never was. The creation of the Palestinian autonomy was always intended by Israel as a long term intermediate stage as a form of conflict management before Judea and Samaria either would be permanently partitioned or incorporated as a whole into Israel depending on the future demographic situation. However, uprooting indigenous Israeli communities built on public lands was never really seriously considered. The legalization of unauthorized indigenous communities built on public lands is long overdue and there is no reason for the geographically illiterate international community to get hysterical over something that does nothing to impede peace but would rather reinforces an hypothetical partition of Judea and Samaria as illustrated by the map of the Kushner peace plan.
