The Levy Commission report that earlier this month found Israelis have the legal right to settle in the West Bank is being twisted and distorted by those here who are on both sides of the issue, according to its authors.

“I must say that I am concerned by the misuse of the report by both those who oppose any Israeli presence in the West Bank (the 41 signatories of the IPF letter), as well as by those rightwing politicians who out of ignorance think that it advocates annexation,” Alan Baker, one of the three members of the Levy Commission, said in an e-mail interview.

Alan Baker, a member of the Levy Commission: The report “is not a political football.”
