This is actually a VERY clever move on the part of the Palestinians, as those settlements are, by definition, illegal under international law. If we side with Israel here, then the Pals and the rest of the civilized world, of which Israel clearly isn't a part, would know that we aren't impartial by any stretch of the Human imagination. We've let Israel commit one warcrime after another, breach numerous international laws, and commit piracy of the high seas. Is this the behavior of someone who's supposed to be impartial? Our Ambassadors and AIPAC have been selling us out for decades, and so have many of our politicians. In my eyes, that's treason, and should be dealt with accordingly.
