Letter: Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria belong to Israel

August 6, 2013 

A little research will show anyone that Judea, Samaria and all of Jerusalem are Israeli land by international law. Have any of you tried and failed to get this message across to your U.S. senator?

Does anyone in public office state clearly that Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria are rightfully Israel's by international law? Has anyone explained how he or she believes that Israel could survive if she is forced to give up this land? Has anyone explained why Israel should be willing to sit down at a table with an enemy who does not accept its right to exist as a nation, or even accept the right of any Jew to live because this is the Palestinian Authority's position?
