More than 200 settlements have been constructed in the Occupied Territories. According to the Israeli Central Bureau of Statistics, more than a half-million Israelis have moved across the 1967 boundaries (320,000 in the West Bank, 200,000 in East Jerusalem). The major goal of the settlement enterprise, in line with exclusive Jewish claims to the entire Land of Israel, is to preclude the establishment of a viable Palestinian state. The settlements, the infrastructure serving them, the “Separation Barrier” necessary to protect all that plus large army bases and closed military areas have created Israeli-controlled territorial contiguity – today encapsulated in seven major settlement “blocs” – while fragmenting Palestinian areas into dozens of isolated enclaves.
