who organised and encouraged settlements after 67 as 'facts on the ground'.And whilst the world has changed in over 40 years,settlements have become entrenched and expansive.Some went there for economic reasons,cheap housing etc.But most came from US etc,grew a beard,changed their name,and were encouraged to regard the area as G-d given.Now it would take extreme effort,(and maybe civil war?) to get them out.They could,of course,be still there under Palestinian rule,or gradually be absorbed into Israel proper,or do land swaps.And tying this up with(at present) non recognition of Israel by Arabs,is totally not the point.
