The post-1967 settlements reestablished Jewish communities which were eradicated by Arabs during the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s.

The popular assumption that Jewish settlements in Judea & Samaria are illegal does not stand up to scrutiny.
Ambassador (ret.) Alan Baker
Letter sent by Ambassador Baker to Secretary Kerry, November 08, 2013
After listening to you declare repeatedly over the past weeks that "Israel's settlements are illegitimate", I respectfully wish to state, unequivocally, that you are mistaken and ill advised, both in law and in fact.

The 1.6MN Arabs, among 6MN Jews, within pre-1967 Israel do not constitute an obstacle to peace; nor do the 350,000 Jews, among 1.7MN Arabs, in Judea and Samaria.

Abu Mazen’s September 23, 2011 UN speech and the Palestinian Authority’s education system reaffirm the fact that Jewish settlements within pre-1967 Israel – and not in Judea and Samaria (J&S) – are the root cause of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.
Congressmen Walsh (R-IL) and Crowley (D-NY), February 17, 2011

1. The complex nature of Jewish construction in the Settlements.
If Jewish construction in Judea and Samaria prejudges the outcome of negotiation, wouldn't Palestinian construction in Judea and Samaria have the same effect?!
If the uprooting of Jewish communities advances peace, why would the uprooting of Arab communities undermine peace?!
The call for uprooting Arabs is immoral; Isn't the uprooting of Jews just as immoral?!
