    .... you would at least check up the physiographic details of Ofra settlement. Ofra is on the hilltop at the height of about 830 m ASL.... and so is also the adjacent Palestinian village Ein Yabrud. Otherwise, all around Ofra there are valleys that are empty. Except for another adjacent Palestinian village Silwad ... which happens to be situated even higher than Ofra (apr. 880m ASL). Now unfortunately, Ofra settlement's planners obviously were not familiar with your theory of gravity law's impact in the laws of justice. This peculiar theory originating in Milwaukee stipulates that the excrements flowing from Silwad should end up and be treated in Ofra settlement (this will contribute to all communities, of course), so the more so that Ofra was built the last. And so the more that Ofra is partly built on the Palestinian private lands. And the next time you expound the argument of dealing with the human waste by a shovel in history of the civilizations, keep in mind that Ofra's population of 3000 was far from exceptional even in ancient times. Some physical exercise with a shovel in hand won't do harm to Ofra's settlers - surely so if they want to transform their hilltop backyards to an arable land. Or else they can make aliyah to Israel and check out Netanya or Tel-Aviv's sewer systems.
