"The US position, often repeated, is that the settlements are illegal." Incorrect. US administrations since Carter have said only that they "view" settlements as "illegitimate", which is a very different thing to "illegal". The USA insists on ignoring the legalities precisely because it knows that the Palestinians hold all the cards in that debate. The Pals therefore have to change the nature of the debate, and the first step is to get the USA to admit in public (they understand perfectly well in private) that what Israel is doing is I.L.L.E.G.A.L.
