    Levy's article reminds me of a recent NY Times piece by Tom Friedman - 'The Earth is Full' in which he rants about how we're using up all of the Earth's resources, living way beyond our means, how "If you cut down more trees than you grow, you run out of trees"... Yet, he failed to mention that what he wrote doesn't apply to him personally. He lives on a 7.5 acre parcel in an 11,400 ft mansion in Bethesda, Maryland worth more than $9M ! For the purpose of transparency, I wonder if Mr. Levy would be willing to share the records of his personal assets ? Does he have a personal stake in where homes are built or not built ? It's simply a matter of supply and demand; if fewer homes are built in the territories, the price and rentals of apartments within the pre-1967 borders increase. Banks profit from higher mortgages, builders profit from higher prices/margins, landlords get to charge higher rentals (tax free up the 10,000 NIS/month) and the whole settler movement with nowhere to expand is weakened in the process. Sounds like a plan to me.
