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 was Information and Content Resource coordinator for the Begin Heritage Center. I am now Deputy Editor of the critical edition in anthology of Jabotinsky's writing in English.

Just to remind you, by comparison, what the United States Jerusalem Consulate could be doing for/with the Jewish residents of Judea and Samaria by what it actually does for the Arab residents (from its FB page):

Have you ever watched the reality show "Al Rais" - "The President."? 
Sponsored by The U.S.-Middle East Partnership Initiative (MEPI), the program aims to promote ideas of political participation, transparency, and respect for human rights. The show centers around a contest among Palestinian youth to select the best young President.

4.

The Consul General visited the city of Jericho, one of the oldest cities in the world. Visiting Hisham's Palace, riding Jericho's famous cable car, and savoring its delicious dates, he learned how Jericho's tourism and agriculture contribute to its economy.

We are very proud of the students who represented the United States at the 3rd annual Rosary Sisters’ Model UN Conference in East Jerusalem this year. 300 students from 16 different high schools across Jerusalem, the West Bank, Gaza, Israel, and Jordan gathered for three days to assume the role of diplomats at the United Nations. American Consulate General officers engaged with the students over important foreign policy issues and listened to the head of the American Delegation “Ambassador” Siwar Elsaheb speak eloquently about the efforts America and our allies are making to fight threats to international peace and security such as “extremism, terrorism, and radicalism”. The future is bright for diplomacy.
