The building of settlements isn't tied into the fight against terrorism. Its a response to a long list of things including the fact that one of the principles in negotiations is a land swap which includes a right of way of Israeli land to be used to connect Gaza and the WB. More importantly, it is a response to the historic presence of Jews in those areas of the WB, the abandonment, not transfer but abandonment, by Jordan of that territory, the unprovked attacked on Israel by Jordan, Pals and other criminal nations in 1967, their refusal to recognize Israel and negotiate a peace settlement, the blood Israel had to sacrifice in defending its Nation, etc., etc. What's the deal. Israel is attacked and the criminal nations simply get their land back, willy nilly? There has to be some detterence, something to lose, in attacking others without provokation. With terrorism, we simply have more of the same, except the focus is on killing, maiming and terrorizing Israeli civilians.
