Note that there is no explicit mention by either the OU or the JCPA** of
Yehuda & the Shomron**. A two state approach ("solution" and "peace
process" are certainly not the right words) means establishing a
dangerous Islamist "Palestine" carved out of Israel, G-d forbid. Like
our holy city of Jerusalem, Yehuda and the Shomron are integral parts of
Eretz HaKodesh. We need to draw our red lines to retain Jerusalem,
Yehuda and the Shomron in order to maximize our security and to retain
the Holy Land which Hashem gave us as "an eternal inhertance".

Shemos/Exodus 6:4,8 (HaShem to Moshe - reminder of promise to the Avot)
Amos 9:14,15 (Return from captivity - plant on to the land - never again to be uprooted)
Ezekiel 36:24, 36; 37:21( Gathering from all the lands to your own soil)
Bamidbar/Numbers 33:53; 34:13 (HaShem to Moshe - boundaries of Eretz Yisrael, the 7 nations)
Shemos/Exodus 19: 5-6 (The Nation of Israel will be a Kingdom of Priests and a holy nation)
What is the reason the Torah begins with Creation? Because if the nations of the world say to Israel: "You are robbers because you have conquered with force the lands of the nations of Canaan" Israel can answer: "He created it and gave it to whomever was proper in His eyes. Of His own will He gave it to them and of His own will He took it from them and gave it to us."
