Settlers have been encouraged by successive Israeli govts to seize and settle the hills in the W/B. As such they are the forward troops for the realisation of Greater Israel. To now expect Israel to be able to put in place a system whereby their acts of violence against the people that they seek to displace and dispossess are now punished will be seen by some as a betrayal. Israel is getting all tangled up in its various bits of spin. I think that its all starting to unravel and that can only be a good thing for all, Jew and Arab alike.
