The article offers the author's perspective on the release of the report by three Israeli legal experts which shows the condition of the building activities in Judea and Samaria. He argues that such report whose goal was to examine the legal status of the Israeli buildings beyond the armistice lines of 1949 could threaten the position of Israeli as a democratic member of the international community. He says that the U.S. State Department opposed the legitimacy of such settlement activity.
