The numbers which appear below in the Official Population Statistics of Judea and Samaria (Yesha), AKA the West Bank, are not readily accessible to the general public. They come directly from the Population Registry of Israel's Interior Ministry and are painstakingly gathered and formulated by the office of Knesset Member Yaakov “Ketzaleh” Katz.

The growing number of Jews in Judea and Samaria is getting the attention of influential people. Despite headlines of world leaders planning a Palestinian State on Jew-free turf, a slow and quiet Jewish population explosion there has already rendered these designs wholly unrealistic.

As of June 30, 2012, there are over 350,000 Jews living in Judea and Samaria (not including the more than 300,000 in the eastern neighborhoods of Jerusalem which are also technically the West Bank).

Yes, Hillary Rodham. Just look at the official stats below.
As per the stats below, the facts on the ground are compelling: it's over; there will never be a Palestinian State in the middle of the Jewish Homeland in the area known as the West Bank. It's only a matter of time before the facts begin to register with people of influence.

In Israel, the smarter, more perceptive political leaders are recognizing this reality. And so it is with former Meretz Party Leader Yossi Sarid who headed the movement to erase the Jewish presence from Judea and Samaria.

Click here to read how Yossi Sarid has thrown in the towel, recognizing that the numbers below are irreversible .

The ramifications are huge. All of us need to change the parameters of how we view Israel and its conflict with the local Arab population. In any arrangement and any initiative, one thing is certain: The Jews of Judea and Samaria are here to stay.

  1. Do you have a link to the official report?

    1. Here is the link to the Hebrew report:
      At your service,

  2. Baruch,

    You are off the wall my friend. Understand one thing: the whole world is against Israel retaining sovereignty over that tiny area called the West Bank. You and your extremist friend Kknesset member Ketzaleh can bark all you want and have as many children as you want, but the world will dictate to Israel what the status of the West Bank will be, and Israel will have to comply, period.

    The world simply doesn't care how many Jewish families will have to be inconvenienced by this decision.

    Wake up and smell the coffee. EVen the Israeli courts rule against you guys. Wait for the international courts! YOur end is near. Sorry to have to break the news to you, but it's rather simple.

    Scott the realist

  3. Scott,

    The difference between you and Yossi Sarid is that you are writing from somewhere over the rainbow, and he is here watching the Jewish presence in Judea and Samaria explode in numbers.

    I invite you for a visit so you can see with your own eyes. It's over. The struggle against the Western imperialist powers who sought to expel us from our homeland with the help of extremists like yourself is over. The indigenous Jewish population has stood up to the world to say, "we defy your dictates to abandon our ancestral homeland. We're here to stay."

    Sarid has recognized that despite all the money the pro-Imperialist organizations like Peace Now received from the Western superpowers, it didn't pay off. The inalienable rights of the Jewish natives to sovereignty in their ancient home have prevailed.

    There is much to see here in Yesha. Much Jewish history. Much beauty. Come celebrate the victory of the Jewish nation in establishing itself in Yesha.


  4. Scott,

    Well, l smell the coffee and its wonderful fragrance tells me of the victory of the Jewish spirit over your "whole world".
    And allow me to make you aware of that since your "whole world" doesn't include the Yesha people, my humble self and quite a few millions like-minded world over it can't possibly be the "WHOLE world".

    You console yourself with fantasies and snivel: "Wait for the international courts! YOur end is near"

    To which the proper reply is: "international courts are bunch of moral zombies and hypocrites". I am not, like yourself, in the business of predictions, so I don't know how near is their end. But their end will come while Yesha will live and thrive as surely as there is God in heaven.

    In the meantime you may join the "international courts" in smelling the bitter coffee of insignificance and impotence.

    As a good catholic I am rejoicing with loud "AM Yisrael Hai"!

    Christian West

  5. It's good to see Israelis living in the Heartland of Israel!

  6. Actions speak louder than words. Jewish and Arab birthrates are almost at exact parity, except Jewish births are on the rise (Israeli Jewish women are the most reproductively successful in the Western World) and Arab rates have plummeted in just a couple of decades and are on the glide-path to European levels.

    The International community is too scared/inept/broke to ever physically get involved in Judea & Samaria. The Jews of Yesha are staying, the arabs will continue to dwindle down - from 1.5m now to half that by mid-century. And if emigration were legal for them (being allowed to sell their land to Jews at 10x what a fellow arab pays for their land, without fear of death, the majority would be gone this decade.

    Congratulations Baruch, by believing you have indeed succeeded in victory.

  7. 350,000 is only a scary number if you are not willing to use violence. The Left will simply pull the IDF out without warning, and leave your 350,000 naive "Israelis" (2/3 of whom are under 18) to defend yourselves with pistols and kitchen knives against 1.5 million Moslem savages armed to the teeth by that selfsame Left. Your "settlements" are nothing of the sort. They are merely suburban bedroom communities utterly dependent on the good will of the Left for their survival. Until you take steps to change this, you will continue to live one Knesset vote away from oblivion.

  8. As previously mentioned; the correct way for lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgender individuals to find a sizegenetics parlor that caters to their tastes usually is to search the internet. The internet could be the perfect place for any alternative lifestyle community feeling that is why the LGBT community has thrived in recent years. The internet has given this group of people a new way to connect with each other that is simple, efficient and uncomplicated. It has allowed the LGBT to rally around their community and more firmly plant themselves in society. Not limited gay sizegenetics parlors.
