    There is one main north/south arterial road in Palestine, the D60 from Jenin to Hebron, linking all the main Palestinian towns. It is the essential artery for communications, trade and internal security and therefore the backbone of the Palestinian state. Every time Israel builds over it, as in Efrat, it underlines their intention to never have a viable Palestininan state, just a collection of isolated bantustans with some local authority, on the lines of Indian reservations (but small ones). They already have a dozen settlements parked right alongside or over it, like little Jewish forts, they've sequestered the road and made it Jew-only in three long stretches, so that the Pals have to take the slow road, it is so obvious that this is all part of the decades-ling masterplan and settlement geometry for the Greater Jewish Master Nation. As long as the West lets them get away with it, they will never stop encroaching, stealing and settling like this, it seems to be the new face of Jewish ethics.
