According to B'tselem, at the end of 2013 there were  

350,010 people were living in the settlements residency communities of the West Bank Judea and Samaria excluding East Jerusalem. According to data provided by the Jerusalem Institute for Israel Studies, the population of the Israeli neighborhoods in East Jerusalem numbered 196,890 people at the end of 2012.

That adds up to 546,900.

With an annual growth rate at that time of  4.4% and 1.9% percent, respectively, they assert that there are

an estimated 547,000 [?] settlers in the West Bank Judea and Samaria

as of last May.

So, at the end of next month, that figure could be close to 575,000.  And the post-1967 neighborhoods of Jerusalem would be perhaps 205,000.  If I took errors into consideration, in favor of the Jewish population, the number of Jews beyond the Green Line is approaching 800,000.

That's a lot of 'people'.

The moronic Netanyahu feels obliged to adhere to a suicidal position because of international pressure.

If it wasn't for the revanants, Judea and Samaria would already be gone like Gaza and Jerusalem would be a divided city again.

In a word, the only answer to the folly of the Israeli elite is more Jews and more Jews on the ground!
