JPS Settlement Monitor header


The Settlement Monitor covers items – reprinted articles, statistics, and maps – pertaining to Israeli settlement activity in the West Bank, East Jerusalem, and the Golan Heights. They are reproduced as published, including original spelling and stylistic idiosyncracies. This page provides the full text of Settlement Monitors, starting in 1993. Unless otherwise stated, the items have been written by Geoffrey Aronson for this section or drawn from material written by him for Report on Israeli Settlement in the Occupied Territories (hereinafter Settlement Report), a Washington-based bimonthly newsletter published by the Foundation for Middle East Peace. JPS is grateful to the foundation for permission to draw on its material. To purchase Settlement Monitors PDFs, please visit JSTOR, the database of scholarly journals at
