If not even God can change the past, then Israel's attempt to retroactively legitimize illegal settlements is unprecendented chutzpah. The settlement issue rightfully bothers the Palestinians as it reaches backward and foward and taints any negotiated settlement.

Israel has to climb down from the limb on which it placed itself of excess pride and landgrabbing. Be a light unto the nations, not a mini wannabee colonial land usurper..
