British Immigrants Less Likely to Live in Judea & Samaria
A new study by a British research institute confirms a longstanding supposition in the Jewish world: the British are less politically right-wing than their North American counterparts.
A report by Maariv newspaper indicates that the vast majority of the immigrants to Israel from the UK do not consider living in Judea and Samaria (Shomron) communities, a move that is far more popular with US and Canadian immigrants.
The Institute for Jewish Policy Research (JPR) published this week a study that found only 5 percent of Jewish immigrants from Britain decide to live in the territories.
