Judea and Samaria vs. the “West Bank”

Share

The West Bank refers to the western bank of the Jordan River, which the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan named the area when it was an occupying power there prior to 1967. But this term is both a very modern name, and a misleading one, because the Jordanian power has been gone for more than five decades. Rather, the terms Judea & Samaria are the ancient Hebrew terms referring to the area, stretching back more than three millennia.
