For many people, the words 'Judea and Samaria,' evoke images of right-wing Jewish extremists stealing land that doesn't belong to them. This picture is false on so many levels, but it goes to show just how successful the anti-Semitic propaganda put out by Israel haters and BDS activists around the world has been.
The truth is that the Jewish claim to Judea and Samaria dates back to the days of the Patriarchs. Abraham bought a piece of land in Hebron. This was where he buried his wife Sarah, and later where he and the other patriarchs and their wives were buried. Beit El was the site of Jacob's famous ladder dream. Shechem was the first place Abraham stopped after reaching the Promised Land.
The list of ancient Jewish connections to Judea and Samaria goes on. Far from being a modern occupation, the Jewish presence in Judea and Samaria is old as Judaism itself.
