This is big news, and it greatly affects towns in Judea and Samaria. It ushers in a new age since the Obama era and is the right thing to do.
The Obama era
During the Obama era, the US administration was much more hostile to the idea of Jews building in the Jewish homeland. In fact, they considered Jewish construction in Judea and Samaria (also known as the West Bank) to be illegal. Yet all of that changed when Donald Trump became president.
Let’s take a step back for a moment. Why was Obama even getting involved here? Why was he getting involved in Israeli real estate? Judea and Samaria are part of the ancestral Jewish homeland. This is where the 12 Tribes settled thousands of years ago. Additionally, more recently, it was land that Israel won in a war. Jews should be able to live and build in Judea and Samaria because it is the Jewish homeland.
There never was a country called Palestine
There has never been an arab country called “Palestine“. It never existed. There was a British mandate Palestine. However, this was not a national Palestinian identity. Israel never occupied Judea and Samaria. Who could they be occupying it from? There was never a Palestinian state there to begin with! Also, how could Jews be occupying their ancestral homeland? So Israel should be allowed to build there.
Do Palestinians really love the land?
Here is a video of Arab terrorists who used firebombs attached to kites to air drop explosives over Israel. It caused massive damage neat Sderot.
If the arabs think Israel is really their homeland, why do they burn it?! You don’t burn your own homeland. These terrorists aren’t out on a romantic journey to reclaim lost land. They want to kill. That’s why they burn land and kill people. If they really cared about the land, they wouldn’t burn it!
President Trump’s approach is a breath of fresh air. He recognized the truth about Judea and Samaria.
