Re: Major Israeli settlement 'unlawful'
Why does no one ever stop to consider that expansionist can coincide with self-defense? Hamas firing rockets into Israel provides justification for Israel's own plans. It's not like Israel hasn't been wanting to expand for decades and engulf Palestine... it still has a religious mandate to do so, just like the radicals in Hamas do. The only difference is that the West supports Israel and Hamas is made out to be the enemy by the media.
When you build a wall around their home, cut off supplies, and prevent farmers from engaging in agriculture, that is reason enough for them wanting to defend themselves by attacking Israel. Even if Hamas stopped firing rockets, the wall would be completed and Israel would still continue to take land an engage in unfair policy making.
