on by Israelis, by displacing and disposessing Pals already on those lands (because as Israelis argue, it is fair game until final agreement, because it is "disputed territory") then Pals can settle anywhere within Israel, set up towns from Tel Aviv to Ashkelon, and then the future of those settlements can also be determined whether they stay or go when the final agreement talks conclude. It seems what Israel declared as Israel only Israel may build in. And what Pals consides Palestine (what's left of it anyway) can also be built on by Israel, while displacement of Pals of those lands continues. Why should Pals be displaced within Palestine, when the same doesn't happen with Israelis in Israel? Oh that's right, the Pals don't exist! And what warped thinking is behind "Lets build first & decide wat we keep later"? You're obviously building because you intend to keep! To Israel "final agreement" talks is a euphemism for "this is the rest we mannaged to grab, now recognise it as our".
