"Expanding settlements, meaning allowing Jews to build homes in the same areas that Arabs are allowed to build homes.." That'd be ISRAELI Jews (& no Israeli Arabs) in illegal settlements, built for Israeli Jews (not Israeli Arabs) in NON- Israeli territory. You seem to always forget that the annexation of East Jerusalem is illegal, the acquisition of territory by war is illegal, Israeli law is illegal in Non-Israeli territory and illegal settlements are...well....ILLEGAL. "What is not debatable to rational human beings is that Jews should have the same rights to build in Judea and Samaria as Arabs do. Any assertion to the contrary is racism." A) Jews are not a race. B) They're Israeli Jews in non-Israeli territory C) You're not rational if you continually advocate breaking the law.
