All parties, including Israel, in 1949 and 1979 agreed to the borders and the political status of the residents of the West Bank (Judea/Samaria) as citizens of Jordan.
Belligerent occupation is governed by The Hague Regulations of 1907, the Fourth Geneva Convention of 1949, and the customary laws of belligerent occupation.
Here’s UN Security Council Resolution 1322 (2000):
There are also UN Resolutions 476 (1980), 478 (1980), 672 (1990), and 1073 (1996).
Not one country or court or political body of any kind agrees with Israel’s determined efforts to move its citizens to a foreign country for permanent residency.
Jericho was settled about 11,000 years ago. Babylonian Hebrews arrived 7,000 years later. They then left but came back hundreds of years later and decided that the subsequent residents all needed to die, every man, woman, child, and their livestock.
“They enforced the curse of destruction on everyone in the city; men and women, young and old, including the oxen, the sheep, and the donkeys, slaughtering them all. — Joshua 6:20-21”
What did Menachem Begin (Nobel Peace Prize, 1978) have to say?: “If I don’t define right or wrong for myself, who will do it for me?”
How about a little Leviticus 19.18: “You shall not take vengeance or bear a grudge against any of your people, but you shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
Israel: annex the West Bank and give all its residents, including your settlers, full legal citizenship status, including the right to vote, run for office, due process, etc.
Otherwise the status quo guarantees more generations of all Jews and Muslims that are raised on hate and fear.
For the last 3000 years the only “right” anyone has had to land in that area is force of arms.
Who is going to do it, The Judean Peoples’ Front, or the Peoples’ Front of Judea?
Per Israel’s Census Bureau, 2009:
Israel is 17% Muslim (1,286,000/7,552,000). That’s up from five years earlier when it was 16% Muslim, 10 years earlier it was 15%, 15 years earlier it was 14%. Israel’s Muslim population is growing 6% - 7% faster than its Jewish population. That has been a steady trend for the last 25 years.
The West Bank is 83% Muslim (2,566,820/3,092,555) (includes 524,000 Israeli settlers).
If Israel annexes the West Bank the new demographic is 3,852,820 Muslims out of a total population of 10,644,555. The new Israel would be 36% Muslim.
Given the higher population expansion of the Muslims at the current 6 - 7%, the Muslims would be a majority of the citizens of Israel in 8-10 years.
Political power would shift over the following 5-10 years, you could easily see a Muslim Prime Minister of Israel in 20 years.
The Knesset is already 13% Muslim. Without annexing, Israel will be a majority Muslim in about 22 years.
Israel needs to face the future political reality of Jews self-choosing to have a slower population expansion as compared to Israeli Muslims.
