What on earth are you talking about ? you know, i know and the world knows building settlements is illegal and will increase tensions between israelis and the palestinians. Israel knows perfectly well this will bring more frustration and violence. What exactly is Israel trying to do ? create another conflict, kill more palestinians, strengthen extremism on both sides and again claim Israel is the victim ? Israel is responsible for its own unsecurity. Building settlements is an act of war and Israel knows it very well. Don't blame the palestinians. Israel is killing peace everyday. You want to commit suicide ? don't do it on the palestinians backs.
