    I can't get over how many people have zero clue as to what is occurring on the ground and make ridiculous claims. The settlements are good for the Palestinians!! Until oslo/intifada and Arafat there were no major roadblocks and palestinians traveled freely. Most jews maintained excellent relations with their palestinian neighbors and they helped in other in so many ways. it all changed with Intifada #1 and oslo. arafat really was not sincere about peace and he really didn't care about the general public (he was very corrupt). Anyone who took a stance against him was risking his life. In order to bring a lasting peace the settlements do not have to be removed. The security must be controlled by IDF, There certainly should be PA police in the arab towns and all incitement and terror must end. There could clearly be a palestinian state with passports and flag but it there is no need to dismantle jews!!! All that has to be dismantled is hate, intolerance and terror.
