There is of course the political need to remove the "illegal" outposts, due to the Roadmap which Israel insists on being in the peace process. But let me discuss why their removal is necessary from Israel's own point of view. The outposts are constructed in places designed to make it impossible to create a contiguous Palestinians state. At best, Bantustans. They are not placed at random, but as part of a design. They are intended to scuttle any peace process with the Palestinans. And this is the wish of the minority Greater Israel crowd, not the majority of Israelis. If Israel wants to preserve the option of the 2-state solution, these outposts must go. In addition, no country and no government can allow an ideological group to grab a piece of land and establish a settlement there. Your government will not tolerate you building a house inside a public park. This is lawlessness of the most basic order, and cannot be allowed. And this is what makes these outposts called "illegal", i.e., without government authorization. Of course, according to the common understanding of international law, ALL settlements are illegal according the Geneva Convention, but these outposts have a different order of illegality, which is responsible for this name. Note that some of these outposts are built on PRIVATE Arab land. They must be removed in any case. (Israeli Supreme Court), but the others are built "in the park".
