ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the decision by Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin to legalize three Israeli communities on the West Bank of the Jordan River such as Kaddum, Ma'ale Adumim and Ofra. It says that these settlements had been established in 1974 and 1975 by ultranationalist Jews in disobedience to the Labor government policy, which aims to provide security along the borders of Israel. It relates that Israel has founded 90 communities in the occupied territories since the Six Day War including 36 on West Bank, 25 in Golan Heights, 20 in Gaza Strip and Sinai and nine in the border of Jerusalem. It adds that the move by the begin administration to legalize the three communities will make them eligible for subsidies and services such as bus transportation and schools.
