    First, the item says something about large contractors. What about the small contractors, or the homeowners themselves, building the houses with permits they obtained before Barak started his campaign. Didn't know that Israel had ex post facto laws. What's illegal about what was legal yesterday. If I recall once an Israel couldn't hold buy or sell US$ and now . . . Ah, but that was so long ago, you say! Same difference with construction in Judea and Samaria. Then too, most of the settlements hire people who pay their taxes to the . . ., neighbors, so to speak. If what goes on in the Gallilee is any indication of what Jews and Arabs living together can be, the Peace Now and others are promoting Apartheid instead of preventing it by telling us "Jews must leave immediately" if not sooner. If that is the case you have to wonder who has the Ghetto Mentality, the settlers or the Peace Activists.
