1) There is NO such thing as Judea and Samaria. So-called religious/biblical claims have absolutely ZERO relevance in the 21st Century. There is only the West Bank, which doesn't belong to Israel. 2) More illegal settlements only serves to further incite hatred and murder from Hamas and its supporters. FAR cry from serving peace, unless you view peace as being only that from Pals being under Israeli jackboots. 3) We as Americans are really getting fed up with Israeli intransigence. Keep biting the hand that feeds you, and you'll find yourself all alone. I for one will relish that day.
