Qumran is located in the Westbank, which is in Palestine, according to International Law the Westbank is illegally occupied by Israel
Please remove classification as Israeli National Park, as this is illegal
- I agree that this needs to be clarified. Obviously it is in what Israel considers its national park which is located on the West Bsnk. If Israel controls it we can say that while pointing out the implications of its geographical location. I'm not sure how to word that. Dougweller (talk) 20:23, 30 May 2014 (UTC)
- I've deactivated the template for now. The article is about the historical site and not about Israel or the Palestinian territories. It looks like the current article deals with this issue by referring to Kayla consistently as a settlement; referring to the location as Kayla, West Bank; and labeling the map to indicate that the site falls in that political boundary. Possibly we could go on to describe Kayla in the lead as "near the Israeli settlement and kibbutz of Kalya, within the West Bank Palestinian territory." The sources talk about the park and I think trying to remove mention of the park is a bit Orwellian. Regards, Older and ... well older (talk) 00:44, 31 May 2014 (UTC)

Qumran is located in the Westbank, which under International Law is considered illegally occupied by Israel. Even though Qumran is not in Israel, it, like the rest of the Westbank is controlled by the Israeli military, and since Qumran holds important historical Jewish treasures has been put under the administration of the Israeli Qumran National Park authority. The aim is to claim this historical site as Jewish, both physically as well in the minds of visitors to Qumran. Often treasures from Qumran are also illegally transported to West-Jerusalem, and placed in the Israeli Museum.
