Give ‘Judea and Samaria’ Its Place in News Coverage

We like Allan Richter’s blog in the Times of Israel and agree that it is long overdue that Judea and Samaria be put in its proper place in the news.

AFSI also refers to this as educating the public on the truth about Israel.

Richter states that the style addition of ‘Judea and Samaria’ alongside ‘West Bank’ or other Palestinian-friendly language would serve readers with objectivity and context missing in Middle East coverage.

Omitting “Judea and Samaria” in news stories is the linguistic equivalent of ridding the land of all Jews and an exercise in revisionism, particularly when “West Bank” carries no historical weight beyond reflecting the illegal occupation by Jordan.
