For the first time in 25 years, a new Jewish settlement in the West Bank has been fully approved by the Israeli government. It’s called “Amichai” and will provide a home to 40 families that were displaced when their former settlement was deemed illegal (ridiculous, I know! No Jewish settlement in the Jewish State should ever be illegal).
Those of us who want to keep Israel whole, see this settlement, developing in a continually fought-over area, to be nothing less than a miracle. With each new settlement that builds up, the chance for a divided Jerusalem and/or a two-state solution goes way, way down. Very good news, indeed!
