THE BIG LIE OF THE “WEST BANK”
At the end of World War I, the British made promises to the French, Ibn Ali Hussein (Arabs) and Jewish Zionists that were conflicting and impossible to keep. Britain would be granted the mandate to administer Palestine and Mesopotamia (Iraq). France would negotiate the mandate over Lebanon, Syria and the Golan.

Britain promised Ibn Ali Hussein Arab independence which the Arabs have achieved beyond their wildest dreams. Britain also promised the Jewish Zionists a homeland in Palestine which included both sides of the Jordan River.
Hussein had three sons, each of which were involved in the unfolding drama. For a brief time, Ali was king of pre-Saudi Arabia before being overthrown by Ibn Saud, the founder of Saudi Arabia and a leader of the radical Islamic group known as the Wahhabis. Their favorite son today is Osama be Laden.
Faisal represented his father at the Paris Peace Conference in 1919 and made an agreement with the Zionist leadership represented by Chaim Weizmann. In the agreement, Faisal accepted the principles of the Balfour Declaration which called for a Jewish homeland in Palestine.
Unknown to the French, the British had promised Faisal they would appoint him as king of Syria. He was crowned as king but the French quickly forced him out in 1920.
To placate Faisal, the British offered to make him king of Iraq. But they had already told his brother, Abdullah, that he would be king of Iraq. Left without a kingdom, Abdullah made plans to attack the French in Syria and establish himself as king.
The British panicked and offered to make Abdullah the ruler of the British mandated area east of the Jordan River. But the British had already promised this land to the Jews. No matter the promise, in 1921 the British took the land of Palestine East of the Jordan River and created a separate territory called Transjordan, later Jordan. This was seventy-seven percent of the land promised to the Jews.
In 1947, the United Nations furthered partitioned the land allocated to the Jews into a Jewish and Arab state. In 1948, Jordan attacked the new State of Israel and illegally occupied the Old City of Jerusalem and the land area originally promised to the Jews by the world powers. Since this land area is west of the Jordan River, the Jordanians referred to it as the “West Bank.” This is the territory liberated by the Israelis in 1967.
From biblical times, the “West Bank” was called Judea and Samaria. It is the very heart of the land God gave to the Jews as an everlasting possession. It was the inheritance of the tribes of Judah, Benjamin, and Joseph, Ephraim and Manasseh.
This is where God appeared to the Patriarchs, where they are buried, where the Tabernacle was located, where David and Solomon ruled, and where the Temple stood. It was Judea and Samaria in the time of Jesus and throughout history.
The Lord calls this area the “Mountains of Israel” (Ezekiel 36). He says He will bring back the Jewish people to the Mountains of Israel. He says His people will “take possession” of the Mountains of Israel (Ezekiel 36:12). These are the so-called “settlers.” They are not obstacles to peace. They are not occupying the mythical “West Bank.” They are taking possession of Judea and Samaria, the Mountains of Israel promised by the Almighty to the Jewish people.
