What's a settlement? What does it mean? Serious question. Please define.

Yeah, correct. I kind of wasn't asking you though.

There is no sane person that believes building more settlements gives peace a better chance.
Although most sane people agree that stopping the "settlements" will not bring peace any closer.

The argument can be made that it puts pressure on the Palestinians to come to the table. The longer they wait the more Jews live in the area and therefore makes it less likely that Israel gives away that land.

Right now, (especially after their success in the UNSC), they have no incentive to negotiate, because they think they can get whatever they want unilaterally.

Now maybe there is some political reasons for him in Israel that he is doing it for. That I really can't comment on and all of you would know better.
And the most racist comment in this thread goes to JTZ.

I agree that is the thinking but we have seen it doesn't work. Just as the terrorist acts against Israel hasn't worked.

"LESS IS MORE" It is the cumulative effect that kills deals!!! How many times do I have to say this?  >:(

Most of you traveled to Israel several times. Some of you live there. A lot of you have family there. Wouldn't you all understand the politics over there way better than me? How is this racist?

I can't even.

Let me ask you. When is the last time you were speaking to a group of black people and told them "all of you would know more about African politics"...

If you would of said some of you, or the guys who live there have family there may know more, it would be one thing but to say all of you.. Is the blatant and clear racism. I for one don't follow Israeli politics for the most part and have no idea what the mood is there. You see I am an individual and I don't think it is very nice or fair to sum me up in a group of people just based on my religion.

If it was about politics in Africa and I believed most of the forum members had ties there I would have no problem making the same comment.

If I said I can't comment on the Torah and all of you would know better would that be offensive to you?

Please read my edit. I added some points. You don't have to defenc this one. It's clearly racist. You like to accuse a lot of people of a lot of things, but can't seem to admit when you are guilty yourself.

You think it is fair to jump all over me without even asking me what I meant or to clarify? Do you really believe when I said "all" it meant every single member on this board?
