Please tell me, why is Israel so stubborn on building settlements in a place that is a disputed land? " Ram The West bank is no longer disputed--it is officially "Occupied territory". Please check case #2056/04 Beit Zourik V Israel. In this case the highest Court in Israel ruled the West Bank to be,,,"Held under Belligerent Occupation" ergo it cannot be sovereign Israeli territory as an Occupier cannot occupy it,s own territory. But Israel even ignores it,s own High Court of Justice. Stay around and see what for and to whom your hard earned tax dollars go and the level of gratitude the USA gets.
