ABSTRACT
The article examines the legality of Jewish settlements in the West Bank. The author states that the notion that the settlements are illegal is commonly, but erroneously, accepted. The article demonstrates that the settlements, while controversial, do not contravene international law in any way. A number of events related to the establishment of the settlements are addressed including the Israeli annexation of the city of Jerusalem, Egyptian sovereignty in the Sinai, and the Six Day War of 1967.
