The author is right on few points and wrong on many, especially on settlement failures. Firstly, I salute the settlers because they have bore the brunt of unwarranted and unnecessary criticism when simply reflecting Israeli government ideology 30 year ago of populating disputed ?spoils? of Arab aggression that the Arabs did not want even when offered to them, thus also creating the ?buffer zone? for Israel against any future aggressions. But it was then, and this is now. There is hardly any way to keep the settlements beyond the wall without displacing the Pals or them being the security, demographical, financial and political detriment to Israel. But here is where one brilliant line of the author comes into play. The most important victory of the settlements that is absolutely critical to Israel?s survival. They have ?moved? the Green line to the wall and it is not coming back either.
