The 300,000 figure excludes the big Jewish settlements in and around E Jerusalem, there's another 200,000 illegal squatters there. It shows the sheer industrial scale of the settlement enterprise. A hell of a lot of Palestinians have had to be displaced and their land seized by force or dodgy legal ploys to accommodate this number. When people ask, where's the Israeli plan? how come they can never produce a map? it's because they have no intention of stopping or limiting the Great Land Grab. The messianic ones are going for broke, right to the Jordan River. And the property developers, speculators, realtors, government officials and Jewish citizens are up to their armpits in zealously furthering the goldrush. It follows that anything and everything Jewish leaders say about talks, negotiations, conditions etc is wholly dishonest. They have no intention of stopping the Great Settlement Enterprise. What they say to the Gentiles is The Big Lie. The Israeli public knows this well and is fully complicit in it. This is a country committed to a racist, nationalist and fascist colonial enterprise and land grab that's 150 years' out of time and illegal under every international law. Of all the countries in the world that should be opposing it, the USA should be the loudest voice. Obama is not fooled by Netanyahu or Barak and his patience with Israel is surely stretched to breaking point now. Netanyahu's PR lines for the media are a most childish and insincere bit of conmanship and attempt to deceive the silly Gentiles yet again. Slippery fellows, these fanatic Jewish leaders.
