For the last 25 years, the HARD-WORKING tax payer who lives within the borders of the State of Israel has footed the bill for settlers cosy villas at low cost, taxes exemptions, costly infrastructure, unrequired army protection that has cost too many soldier's lives.All that in the name of a pseudo ideological revision of Zionism. Settlers of the terrirories did not settle land in order to create a Nation not even as a dependance of a Nation. There never was any desire to create a local economy in the territories that would include native populations Quite the contrary, they created fortified enclaves for the wealthy to parade in the midst of utter poverty and misery. Fertile ground for terrorism. And now we have again to foot the bill and the moral outrage of their removal from where any history student could have told they should never have been. Ideology in the world died together with the Berlin Wall. Ideas can be listened to, no one can guaranty that they have to be respected because they are someone's opinion, especially when they are the minority in the State.
