Yael Eckstein Thanks US for ‘Sensible Policy Grounded in Reality’

JERUSALEM — Mrs. Yael Eckstein, President of the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews, issues the following statement responding to the United States new position on settlements in the West Bank:

“Once again, this United States government has embraced a sensible policy grounded in reality, which is the first step in the process to achieve lasting peace in the Holy Land. The truth of the matter is that America is recognizing what the Bible has already established as truth: Jews have lived in cities throughout Judea and Samaria for thousands of years. I applaud the United States for acknowledging that settlements there are in no way, shape or form illegal. And I commend the Trump administration for consistently taking bold action in response to decades of indifference. May God bless our friends and allies in the U.S.”
