Number of Jewish Americans Moving to Illegal Settlements Increases ‘Dramatically’

The number of Jewish Americans moving into illegal settlements in the Israeli-occupied West Bank has increased dramatically, according to recent data from Tel-Aviv’s Central Bureau of Statistics.

Out of the 2,296 US citizens who migrated to Israel last year, 191 moved into illegal settlements. This represents nearly a threefold increase from the previous year when less than three percent settled in Palestinian territory.

American Jews are also the most likely to settle in occupied territory compared with fellow Jews from other parts of the world. While they accounted for just over ten percent of all the newcomers arriving in Israel last year, they made up nearly a third of those opting to settle in the West Bank.
