Understanding the West Bank Settlement issue


The issue of Israeli settlements in the West Bank is one of the key elements in moving the two-state solution forward and resolving the Israeli/Palestinian conflict.  The issue is contoversial, complex, and integral to the peace process, and we would like to provide materials helpful in gaining an understanding of the issue.

Elliot Abrams, a former Deputy National Security Advisor, wrote an article for Foreign Affairs magazine that we think is helpful in understanding the settlement issue.  Opinions on the settlement issue expressed by Mr. Abrams are his own and not the opinions or positions of Presbyterians for Middle East Peace.  The article can be accessed through the following link:


Will be adding additional articles on this important subject.
