    D: "correct." We agree on something! Hurray! D: "but the point is that if it is politically impossible for Israel to demolish settelemnts." Define "politically impossible", Duncan You are suggesting that an illegal policy can be continued simply BECAUSE correcting it is certain political death. So sorry, but the political COST of correcting an illegal act does not enter into the equation when determining its illegality NOR the illegality of any subsequent act designed to support and perpetuate it. The settlements are illegal. Evacuating them would kill off the political career of any Israeli politician who evacuates them. Agreed. Tough. They need to be evacuated, and the Israeli PM whose career is killed off simply needs to do the job required of them. Then they can go home to lament the sad destiny of their career. It's called "leadership", Duncan. "Politically impossible"! As legal loopholes go that's scraping the bottom.
