I'm glad that Haaretz has published this important article. Given the facts that are described, it does appear that the gov't is acting in a non-democratic way. The many anti-settler responses to this thread never address that issue - isn't it relevant that many settlers are actually following the law and that the gov't doesn't seem to be playing fair? It appears that the author is simply asking for all parties, including the powerful one (ie the govt) to follow the rules. Oh yeah, and secondarily, I think the comparison to Rosa Parks is certainly worth exploring. When Pres. Carter throws out the word apartheid its seen as an acceptable comparison for many people. So now that the door is open those same people should be willing to accept the comparison from the other side. Even if they do not feel its on point it seems like a reasonable and sincere effort on the part of the author to express her opinion using an historical metaphor. If its OK for Pres. Carter, its OK for Ms. Karni.
