With the West Bank settlements the Israeli government is trying to do to the Palestinians what our government did to the Native Americans. Palestinian land is either bought well below market value or confiscated. Everything on it is destroyed, no matter how many decades or centuries a family had been farming there, so that a new settlement can be built. No I'm not anti-Israeli. We need to have Israel exist, and it is a fact of life today. There just seems to be no will in the government, or agreement among the umpteen political parties that form coalitions, about coming to any kind of solution.
