It;s an illusion to think that financial support for the illegal settlements can be stopped. First of all because the criminals are the ones who decide on the money, in ALL the ministries. Also in the finance ministry. Second: Justice, democracy, legality are all words that mean nothing to a large number of people in Israëli power. People, who think that 'Settlement of the Land of Israel' is a holy act and goes above anything else. It;'s felt like a race: as long as there is no perspective of true peace, they want to steal as much land as possible, to expel as many Palestinians as possible. This ' short term holy urgency' precedes all the long term ' democratic justice bla, bla'. It is freightening that people can think this way, but it has been stimulated by Israëli public discours and school curriculum. That is why the sanity that Haaretz calls for will not happen....
