judeasamariaToday there are over 360,000 Israelis living throughout Judea and Samaria. While the world largely condemns Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria, it is the fulfillment of many Bible prophecies. The Palestinians insist on calling the area the ‘West Bank’ and ‘occupied territory’. There are many Arabs co-existing peacefully with Jewish communities, yet the security threat to Israelis continues. From 2000 to 2005 over 1,000 Israeli citizens were killed and 6,000 were injured in suicide bombings, sniper fire and other forms of terrorism. The security fence, built since then, has greatly reduced the number of attacks however.

We grieve with and for the families of lost loved ones, such as Dafna Meir of Otniel, killed in front of her home in January, Hallel Ariel of Kiryat Arba, 13 year old girl stabbed to death on her own bed last June, Rabbi Miki Mark also of Otniel, killed in a drive by shooting near his home.

There are over 170 passages in the Bible where God promises to give the Land of Israel to Abraham and his descendants through Isaac and Jacob (the Jews), as an EVERLASTING INHERITANCE of the Land.
