New Report: 800,000 Jews Reside in Judea & Samaria

A new population report of Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria was released last week. The report finds there are 463,353 Jews living in Judea and Samaria. The precise number of Jews residing in the eastern neighborhoods of Jerusalem has not been officially ascertained but is predicted to be between 325,000-350,000, thus making the total figure of Jews living the areas liberated in 1967 about 800,000. The numbers in the report confirm the operating assumption of the teams working on Trump's newly released peace deal, that the Israeli presence in Judea & Samaria is irreversible, and that, unlike previous USA plans for peace, no Jewish homes will be uprooted as part of the current proposal. The growth rate of the "settlement population" is well ahead of the general population, driven in part by the relatively affordable housing prices found in Judea and Samaria, as well as the higher birthrate among their many religious families. The report includes the breakdown of every town in Judea and Samaria and shows population growth as compared to last year and 5 years ago. (VFI News)

“Though you were ruined and made desolate and your land laid waste, now you will be too small for your people, and those who devoured you will be far away. The children born during your bereavement will yet say in your hearing, ‘This place is too small for us; give us more space to live in.’" Isa. 49:19-20
