    As smart as US attacking Iraq after 911. Sure, even people of US accuse the government of staging the terror attack, and sure, all the sympathy from 911 is long lost, and hundreds of thousands have died because of it, but US has greatly benefited from the decision. Good move Israel. Now you will be accused of killing your own settlers, just to be able to settle even more, but hey, you get to settle. besides who cares about PR, right? Since you are incapable of simulating your own moves, let me tell you what will happen. you will anger all the politicians in the world that have accused you of not wanting peace, no one else will condemn the attack, just not to encourage you to build even more (why stop at 500? why not 500.000? sure, next time.) , you will provoke the terrorists to the level that they will want to kill many more, just to scare the settlers away, and the sympathy you received from the attack? it's already lost. and you will see a lot of comments everywhere claiming that lieberman himself arranged the attack. but you get to have 500 new homes. yay.
