    Labhras, I am pro-Israel but I am not a fan of settlements. I was glad that Israel pulled the settlers out of Gaza. I do think that there are religious reasons (Kotel and Old city) why Israel should be allowed to exchange land for land and keep parts of East Jerusalem. I also think that the large blocs ( Etzion Bloc that was ethnically cleansed through massacre in 1948)should be exchanged. Your dealing with someone that doesn't have a problem with Taba (and even the Geneva Accords). So, I call for the legalizing of some settlements through negotiation and the removal of the rest. I oppose the Pal 'right of return'. I think most Europeans think that Pals can return to Palestine, Jews to Israel. Your solution appears to be 5 million Pals in Israel proper, 6 million Jews in Israel proper and no Jews in the holy city of Hebron, etc. To you, Israel is born in sin. In fact, all nations were born in sin - even Ireland. You can't have a settlement without satisfying the Jews.
