for a tiny fraction of the Israeli population which shouldn't even be where they're at! And if that investment had instead been made in the core areas of Israel proper, then the situation wouldn't be as it is now. When Israel's colonists are being prioritized to the great extent that they are, at the expense of Israelis who actually reside in Israel - and with THEIR tax money - there's something terribly wrong with what's happening in Israel! Add to that the money and resources expended for settlement infrastructure, roads, the IDF's military presense, etc, etc...one has to really question the government's priorities when the needs of the public aren't being met in Israel proper. Environmental concerns and tight control of land availability aren't really what lies behind the problem...
