    Settlement in the Occupied Territories is ILLEGAL. This is supported by Article 49 of the Fourth Geneva Convention and article 43 of the Hague Regs which are intent to preserve the demographic and social composition of Occupied Territories. The fact that Israel persists with this policy despite international opposition suggests that it has no real desire for peace. The United States' offer of concessions to Israel to stop something that is blatantly illegal is offensive. The best option for the Palestinians is to declare statehood and seek international support through the UN - this is the only option that will stop Israel's rampant land grab and hopefully moderate its contempt for the rights of the Palestinians and for international law.
