    Simply by your words you show you have no support for Israel. To refer to the situation as Satanic and even to invoke the word "Apartheid" shows your utter ignorance of both terms. You are victim of a media frenzy - nothing more. Talk to a person who has been to both places - South Africa and Israel - and you'll hear them say "No comparisons!" Do a little homework! As for the settlements - they are now gone from Gaza and it's up to the Palestinians to take care of themselves from now on. The whole purpose of the settlements, on one hand, was reclaiming areas that once were Jewish prior to the Arab invasions over the past 400 years that essentially ended Jewish presence in this area. Even in 1929, Arabs attacked their Jewish neighbors, burnt down their houses, and made an open air market on top of their synagogues. This is Our right of return!! Another issue of the settlements is that the area in claimed in 1967 was infact "put aside" for the Palestinians, because the Egyptians and Jordanians couldn't be trusted. When the Palestinians continued their acts of agression and mid-night attacks on women and children as they slept, then it was necessary to "push the envelope" a bit. Suddenly, Arafat realized he could lose the 1967 areas too and did for a while. Now, negotiations, not attacks, brought the land back to Palestinians. Too bad the Palestinians rejected so many offers in the past or this would have happened years ago - and Hamas wouldn't even exist today - and so many lives wouldn't have been snuffed out.
