    "At that moment, every Israeli apartment in Jerusalem's French Hill neighborhood will become illegal. Every military base in the West Bank will be contravening the sovereignty of an independent UN member state. The Palestinians will not be obligated to accept demilitarization and peace and to recognize the occupation." The settlements are all illegal now and will remain illegal. Every Israeli apartment in French Hill is already illegal (if it's in occupied territory). As long as the territory remains "occupied", that is, until there is a peace treaty. There will probably be increased pressure (that is, increased from ZERO) for removal of all settlers. The military presence is legal and will remain so, unless the UNSC decides that such a protracted occupation is per se illegal. After 44 years it certainly seems more of a land grab (illegal) than a temporary occupation (legal if peace is being pursued). Wake up and smell the coffee. Coffee is good for you.
