Former Israeli Prime Minister, Menachem Begin, hosted a US Senator about 30 years ago. They flew together, via helicopter, over the West Bank (who’s biblical name is Judea & Samaria). PM Begin was arguing the case of the strategic value of this area for Israel. Upon landing, Begin turned to the Senator and asked him regarding his thoughts. His response was “you absolutely belong in Judea & Samaria, but you absolutely need to leave the West Bank”. Welcome to politics in the Middle East.
