It would be nice if the core of the problem were wb settlements. Imagining that it is gives someone a focus, however false. Stop settlements and someone will promote the idea that the problem is water usage. Solve that and the problem will be some biblical dilemma. Israelis seem to have a never ending supply of political tricks to keep distorting the basic issue. There is always a medium sized issue that can be studied and solved politically, locally, without really changing Israel's status quo. Israel is at the very extreme end of its shelflife. A huge tragedy is brewing.
