Since 1967, Israel has a habit of building settlements under the fictitious right of conquest and later coming to its senses and bulldozing those same settlements after forcibly ethnically cleansing its own citizens from the settlements. This pattern was followed in Sinai to make peace with Egypt and later was done unilaterally in Gaza to save resources and focus on seizing West bank land.. Israeli politicians call this practice of seizing land, building settlements, then ethnically cleansing those same settlements, and bulldozing them "painful concessions." This is a curious practice.
