On the 50th anniversary of the occupation, Israel-based Davar Rishon newspaper conducted interviews early this month with five Israelis who “adopt crystallised, complementary and integral visions on the future of Judea and Samaria (West Bank)”. These proposed four different options on the future of Israel and the West Bank. Davar Rishon made clear that the “only common

denominator between all these is a real concern over the future and population of the State of Israel” despite the fact that “their opinions are so different that they are completely contradictory.” Three of these Israelis coincide that “Israel should change its approach and direction.”
