I think the responses to this article show how Israel is held hostage by the lunatic right and it's crusaders, the Settlers. The best interests of Israelis do not even enter the debate. The debate is over whether the Settlers have a God GIven Right to exterminate Palestinians, or whether Settlers have a God Given right to displace them. In EITHER case, there is NO right of Arabs to live within Judea and Samaria, AND NO RIGHT of Israelis to object. Israel must submit to the Settlers. What the Settlers want is what they MUST get. And what might serve the interest of many times more Israelis is to be subjugated to the desires of the Settlers. A few hundred thousand fanatics control the future of Israel. And the overwhelming majority of Israelis are happy to have those few fanatics decide their future. Were this not true, then Israel would stop them. It does not even oppose them. The Settlers ARE Israel. Get REAL Mr. Burston. Israel will never oppose the Settlers.
