Yesha Council chairman Dani Dayan brought the case for continued Jewish settlement in the West Bank to the op-ed pages of The New York Times Thursday, and argued against a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. 

"The insertion of an independent Palestinian state between Israel and Jordan would be a recipe for disaster," Dayan wrote, saying that hundreds of thousands of Palestinians from Arab lands would ensure a new Palestinian state became a "hotbed of extremism."

Israel, Dayan wrote, would eventually be forced to recapture the territory for security purposes.
