For the last 50+ years Israel has faced an existential decision of staying in Judea and Samaria or leaving the West Bank. Israel has still not made a clear final decision on what it will do. This presentation focuses on the security side of this decision (although it touches on the normative aspects as well) from both sides of the argument both at the basic security and current security perspective and from the Israeli and the Palestinian perspective.
