    Clickfool, you state that the settlements are "illegal". But they are illegal according to "international law". And the reality is that international law is a)unfair b)undemocratic c)against Israel. It is unfair because five of the countries of the world, the members of the UN security council (incl. Britain)- are "above" it. It is undemocratic because the vast majority of governments in the General Assembly do not represent their people (i.e. in Africa, Asia). Finally, Israel is the only Jewish country - and we know that votes in the General assembly so often are based on alliances - and Israel naturally has very few allies. This does not mean that the UN should be disbanded; but the word "illegal" is misplaced regarding state issues. If the UN became a)fair b)democratic c)less influenced by alliances - then perhaps it would be more relevant - but then the first order would be to stop the genocide in Darfur. The Palestinians, after all, qualify among the rich of this world.
