Netanyahu, like Yitzhak Rabin and Ariel Sharon, has abandoned Greater Israel, admitting the inevitability of a Palestinian state: “I have to ask myself what should be done about the million-and-a-half Palestinians living in Judea and Samaria. Should they become Israeli citizens? That’s not my point of view. << --- >>"
The old Likudnik’s biblical reference lingers — Judea and Samaria for the West Bank — but he’s embraced two states because he’s grasped the alternative: more Arabs than Jews in a single state. << --- >>

I think 'for' here means "meaning the same as". The term 'Judaea and Samaria' is Zionist code for what the rest of us call the West Bank: that is, the ancient historical terms Judaea (Judea) and Samaria are used to lay Jewish claim to what is today the Palestinian West Bank region. That is, those words are used for (as a substitute for) another term.
