    and the ensuing question is so what? It is quite clear that there is nobody to enforce Israel to do otherwise. 1)Europe is in tatters. Besides that if the question is to enforce something for the sake of human rights, so first comes Syria. Nothing happens there, proving once again the West impotence. 2) Obama understands that the new Middle East is more problematic and worst that the old ME. In any case he must rely only on its "old" friends, namely Israel. 3) Russia and China cannot care less of a few homes in the West Bank. Israel is indeed taking adventages of opportunities and holes at the international system and acting according to the rules of the jungle, however, without extreme violence ( in comparative terms) and always at the fringes of legality sometimes as this one, slightly violating it.
