    I have seen families living inside the green line with 5 kids in small apts too who could use the million sheckles to improve their lives, so why should one sector of society get more than the other? The settlers chose to to the Gaza,the compensation they get should be realistic and just enough to give them a house like the rest of us live in, they should be equal to the rest of us ,not better. Because of the war last summer we lost out livilhood(we live in the North, we are struggling, but we are not crying poor us, help us, we are doing it on our own,looking for good jobs and downsizing where we can. I have no pity for the settlers, they should adjust their thinking to the reality they now live in,buy a house they can afford, kids can share bedrooms, the parents should look for jobs and get on with their lives and stop complaining they had it better than the rest of us for so many years.
