    but you miss the main point. Moving to a settlement is making ipso facto a political statement. If you do not make it yourself, others will do. In this story, there is no symmetry between Jews and Pals. Sure, an Arab does not violate Jewish right when he buys an appartment in Jerusalem, that is, WE make sure he does not. Hence, in both cases (an Arab buying an apt in Jerusalem or a Jew settling in Modiin Illit), WE and only WE decide. What is right, what is wrong, what is violation, what is not. The others have no say about this. This fact is too easily omitted. How long can we live on like this ? Admittedly, this is politics, but someone has to take responsibility. If we do not, who ? And yes, SUCH A COMMENT IMPLIES that I care for Jews.

Why we don't know how to pick our leaders

Our craving for ideology means that we are partial to ideological leaders. But we need leaders who will make smart decisions that are aligned with the public interest.
