Building more settlements is a good tactical move. Who knows what could happen in the negotiations. It is a win-win: Either negotiations go nowhere because the Palestinians won't consider the GOI to be negotiating in good faith, or if they proceed to final status then more land (facts on the ground) will be part of the Major Settlement Blocs. that go to isreal in the final border agreement. Neat! In the words of the beloved former PM Sharon, "Everybody has to move, run and grab as many (Palestinian) hilltops as they can to enlarge the (Jewish) settlements because everything we take now will stay ours...Everything we don't grab will go to them." -- Ariel Sharon, Israeli Foreign Minister, addressing a meeting of the Tsomet Party, Agence France Presse, Nov. 15, 1998.
