    How can a majority of Israelis not see the problem with settlement building when 14 out of 15 countries of the UNITED NATIONS voted on a measure condemning it? I have news for you that the 15th country condemns it too but was forced to veto it due to political obligations. Wake up! The whole entire world is against you on these settlements. You have your country. Stop trying to take more. What you are doing is wrong, even in East Jerusalem. The Palistinians are ready for peace if we give them their land from 1967. Why isn't the majority of Israelis realizing that's the right thing to do? Sincerely, A curious jew from the U.S.
