All, The Pro-Pals believe their own propaganda so completely that they are completely unable to listen to the settlers. The settlers sincerely believe that the WB is the Land of Israel. If that is true, then forbidding them to build while encouraging Pals to build is racism. You believe that the Jordanian ethnic cleansing of 1948 was valid and that a Jew-free WB (soon to be Palestine) should be the basis of the 4th Geneva Convention which forbids 'transfer of civilian population' to occupied territory. Therefore, the existence of Jewish towns there is racism. If we're ever going to get to a negotiated settlement, the other side is going to have to negotiate the Israeli claims across the Green Line - whether religious, Biblical or Historical. You may not agree with them, but they are part of the negotiation. The result will probably be some exchange of territory to keep the most populous settlements in Israel & some International guarantees of Jewish Holy Sites.
