Israeli President Shimon Peres said Tuesday that the West Bank settlements are bad for the Jews. JTA reports:

“It is doubtful that a Jewish state without a Jewish majority can remain Jewish,” Peres said, inferring that settlements would lead to the inextricable inclusion of the Palestinians living on the West Bank.

Peres’ remarks were an apparent response to the Levy Committee report, released Sunday, which stated that the West Bank settlements were legal because Israel does not meet the definition, under international law, of a military occupation.
