    Stephen, You equate Hamas, a terrorist movement, with Israeli 'settlers'. You are loosing face. When is the last time you were there? Lets get a couple of things straight. The 'settler movement' is democratic and have the highest political voting percentage in the country. They serve in the IDF and have a very high rate of employement. They are non-violent. There are acts of violence perpetrated by fringe elements but the movement is not violent or militant, they do not carry out suicide bombings, lynchings or mass murder. When you claim there is no state of Judea, which everyone will agree with, as there is only a State of Israel. Please explain when you said there is only occupied palestinain West Bank, doesnt the west bank refer to Jordan?
