    "Israel has the right to at least some of the settlements." (Tim R) Who said? And which ones? Nations have no right whatsoever except those granted by the community of nations. Anything else is for internal consumption, the stuff ceremonial speeches are made of: "Our Inalienable Right to this, our Fundamental Right to that ... " This is what Milosevic used to spout off regularly. It didn't help him much. Lament the fact, whine about it as much as you like, Israel cannot change that. " ... the right to at least some of the settlements, irrespective of what your politicized (and corrupt) UN claims to be international law." (Tim R) Come up with some idea about how to effectively de-politicize and uncorrupt what the entire world claims to be international law. We will then discuss this issue again. Until you do, my position is and will stay that we shall honour the commitments we made when joining the UNO. Or else ... Think Serbia and South Africa. We don't want Israel to be added to the list, do we? " [International law] is just the political will of the ruling - or would be ruling - class which, in the case of Israel AND Serbia, is the powerful coalition of Arab/Muslim nations who force their will on other nations by the politics of fear and oil." (Tim R) Are you really telling me that it is fear of what "the powerful coalition of Arab/Muslim nations" (name some of them) can wreak on the international community - that has led it to help Kosovo gain its independence from Serbia? And to bring Milosevic and his accomplices to justice? And to embargo South Africa? Is that an issue I am supposed to discuss with you? Be serious. I may as well discuss the influence of Saturn on your perception of the world.
