    Reality is that Israel has no intent to ever reign in 'illegal outposts' anymore than it intends to end settlement expansion. What is amazing is how cowardly Israel is in it's continuous denial of reality. Israel refuses to be honest with anyone - including Israelis - about it's intent to expand settlements, 'legal' and illegal by any means available. Nor will it be honest about it's intent to crush any leftist Israeli or Arab opposition. Israel lies to itself and believes it's own lies. That is the most damning accusation anyone can make. Israel has to lie to itself, and the world, and the universe about it's goals which it's every action shows it is lying about. Any who feels it necessary to lie to themselves is sick, depraved, and degenerate by their own standards. Will Israel admit that it's goal is to eradicate Arab pollution in Greater Israel? I will say ok. As long as Israel pretends it's government of Netanyahu and Lieberman has any other intent it lies.
