Annexation of Judea and Samaria is a reality and vision whose time has come

We at the Conference of Jewish Affairs look forward to the day when Israel will annex the portions of Judea and Samaria that from time immemorial have been part of the Land of ancient Israel. The Jewish people were bequeathed this land and the name of Judea and Samaria was always its official name, even throughout the years of the British Empire.

There is and has been an historical and biblical attachment of these lands as a valve in the heart of Israel. It is legitimately, by law, part and parcel of Israel and was never considered legally apart from the Jewish homeland until very recent years when enemies and bureaucrats hostile to the establishment of a Jewish state in its homeland began finagling international laws.

It must be observed that though this land lain mostly fallow since Roman times and no other empire or people developed it, it has been the Jewish people who have restored its cities and made its land productive and a flourishing place. This achievement was done by no other people except the Jewish people who loved the land, in contrast to other people who make claims on the land but have not dealt with it with love, sacrifice, ingenuity, and destiny. And that is because the only nation that has been devoted to its fulfillment in and of itself are the Jewish people who are biblically and intrinsically married to it, as opposed to those who make claims for it but never had a history entwined with it.

Historically there was no Palestinian people except for the Jews who were so named during Roman occupation; and there never was an Islamic state, flag, language, and peoplehood connected with Judea and Samaria.

We wish to acknowledge the singular vision of President Donald Trump and his courage and sense of truth in being the first world leader to finally bring this verity to sovereign reality. We thank Secretary of State Mike Pompeo for his steadfast strength in carrying out the wishes of President Trump. As we began saying two years ago when President Trump moved the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem, there has not been a greater friend to the State of Israel and the Jewish people than Donald Trump, surpassing even the legendary King Cyrus.
