    Thanks for the reference. I cannot dispute the factual side of Israeli settlement activity in the WB. It is wrong though to attempt to objectively evaluate the situation by citing the Palestinian grievances only. This is what your side fails to grasp: Israel has legitimate grievances too. And by excluding the Israeli grievances from the equation you continuously set yourself for another strategic failure. Let me remind you that the Palestinian position and their chances for a fair settlement, a state etc. have been getting progressively worse since 1947 when you could have had a much larger state. After 5 lost wars, all a direct result of your leadership’s failures, you could have had an settlement during the Oslo but turned it down not realizing that the next time the settlement offer would get even smaller. You see there are costs to forgoing an opportunity to settle. Sorry but this is the reality of the human condition confirmed by human history. The winner gains benefits, the looser gains misery.
