Morris Valentine, it is indisputable that the European Union has this as its policy: 1) This is all occupied territory 2) All of this occupied territory is subject to the articles of the Geneva Conventions 3) Those Geneva Conventions insist that the colonization of occupied territory by an occupying power is UNCONDITIONALLY PROHIBITED 4) Therefore any "settlements" that Israel builds in any of this territory is ILLEGAL. Now, you - and Old Man Peres - can argue until you are blue in the face that the EU has it So Terribly Wrong, and you are both simply wasting your time. The position of the EU on this issue is crystal-clear, and it ain't gonna be changed merely because you and The Old Fart say otherwise.
