    the settlers are used to the de facto recognition of the 'outpost' (to me, Ariel and Kiriat Arba are just as illegal)The israel electricity company provides them with electiricity, water, telephone lines, municipal services, they are provided without questions. When Palestinians turn to the Israeli police when their land is stolen, the police refuse to do anything, accept maybe arrest the Palestinians for some stupid reason: all the state institutes are blind supporters of these crimes. So once every now and then the supreme court gives a 'shocking' ruling, the settlers and their Knesset hindgemen are in an uproar and then .... nothing happens. The Israeli Supreme Court is a toy, a tool for international propaganda to show the world that Israel is a 'beakon of democracy'. but on the ground nobody gives a damn about their rulings: the land theft, the oppression, the bureaucratic ethnic cleansing anf the eroding of Israeli democracy will go on and on and on. Nobody stops the settler criminals.
