Yisrael Medad
I am a resident of Shiloh, with my wife and children, and now grandchildren, since 1981, having come on Aliyah in 1970. I have served in a volunteer capacity as a Yesha Council spokesperson, twice a member of Amana's secretariat, Benjamin Regional Council plenum member and mayor of Shiloh. I was a parliamentary aide for Geula Cohen and two other MKs, an advisor to a Minister, vice-chairman and executive director of Israel's Media Watch and currently, am Information and Content Resource coordinator for the Begin Heritage Center.

In the past I have noticed headlines and stories that employ the terms "settlement", "bank" and even "west", at the expense (pardon the pun) of the Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria.

One was reported in Washington:

This week, Mr West’s work was in the spotlight again when DoJ inked a record $16.65bn settlement with Bank of America

Now, a few days later, we have another winner, at The New Yorker:


Can be extremely confusing at times.

To repeat:

Jewish revenants reside in communities located in the area of the historic Jewish homeland that, by international law, was to be reconstituted.
