    Expanding settlements, meaning allowing Jews to build homes in the same areas that Arabs are allowed to build homes, might not make Israel safer. That is debatable. What is not debatable to rational human beings is that Jews should have the same rights to build in Judea and Samaria as Arabs do. Any assertion to the contrary is racism. If one looks deeper at Obama's statement, one sees through to the basic issue, which is Zionism's (and Israel's) right to exist. According to Obama and the left, Israel was brought into being not because the Jews had a moral right to the Land of Israel, but in order to prevent Jews from being killed in another holocaust. Based on this philosophy, any solution, including a state in Uganda or equal rights in the U.S. would be a "zionist" solution. However, Israel was not brought into being to create security for the Jews, but rather to assert the Jewish claim to the Land of Israel and re-establish the state which had been destroyed by the Romans.
