All those who claim that building by Israel in the settlements is against International Law, use a double standard. A recap: 1. Israel conquered the so-called West Bank from Jordan. 2. King Hussein (late-) of Jordan proclaimed in the early 90-'s that he withdraws his claims concerning the West Bank. 3. Thus, strictly speaking in terms of Int. Law, it is a kind of Nomansland (officially termed "disputed area"). 4. Therefore, ANY building activity, from either side, would be against Int. Law. Hmmmm, I didn't hear anybody about similar activities by the other party in the dispute...
