Yes, yes, we know Gilo is 'strategically important' to Israel, but there again, which of the 160 settlements isn't, according to the Israelis? The harsh fact remains. Gilo is on Palestinian land. Israel redrew the city boundary in 1967 to try to get its hands on areas like this. But an occupying army cannot annex land, it is expressly forbidden in international law, so Gilo remains an illegal settlement built on someone else's territory. It does show starkly how little Israel cares about the law, peace or its reputation for integrity. The Somali pirates are more honourable characters to deal with.
