    So Ill repeat the gist of it (Esther has already stated one central point). The Galilee and the Negev are internationally-recognized parts of Israel; the West Bank is not. However, the demographic balance in the Galilee and the Negev is shifting in favor of the Arabs, who now make increasingly strident demands for political autonomy. If you and your compatriots had settled, or would settle in these parts of Israel, you would have helped keep the demographic balance in favor of the Jews. But since you have chosen to settle in the West Bank, which have never been part of the State of Israel (forget the Bible for a moment, OK?), you are making all of Israeli Jews run an increasing risk of losing the Galilee and the Negev. You are causing the Israeli government unnecessary and wsted expenditure on construction, roads and military expenditurem which will all have proved to be a waste, once peace is made with the Palestinians. You will cause yurselves great heartbreak (cont'd.)
