@ peacelover, Kindly cite the law which makes these settlements "illegal"? US Resolution 242 governing the West Bank mentions Israeli withdrawal from territories captured in 1967, specifically omitting the words "the" and "all" territories. Its authors left the scope of withdrawal open to negotiation. And "thievery" from whom? There was no Palestinian state in 1967: the West Bank was Jordanian territory. I'm all in for a 2-state solution, but am irked by the rank ignorance of "peace lovers" such as yourself.
