I don't know how many times it must be repeated. THE SETTLEMENTS ARE ILLEGAL! As for the wall, there would not be major objections had the wall been built on the Green Line. As it is, the wall is a land grab by Israel as it is built mainly on the land of the West Bank taking away some 10% of Palestinian lands. I hope that the Vatican and Catholics around the world raise this issue not only with Israel but with their congregations who will no longer believe that Israel treats all religions the same.
