Organic farming in Judea and Samaria (the West Bank)

Good article covering the challenges and successes of organic farmers in Judea and Samaria (the West Bank). I just can’t help thinking, though, how much stronger and less divided Israel might be had these farmers chosen instead to make their homes within the Green Line (i.e. Israel’s de-facto borders before the 1967 Six-Day War).

While I’m very much in favour of organic farming, choosing to farm in this way in Judea and Samaria (the West Bank) is akin to building on quicksand.  There is no security of tenure for those who choose to make their homes in the disputed territories.
