Skip to comments.Settlements are not just legal, but necessary

A fascinating development this week in Israel was the release of the report of a governmental commission whose assignment had been to define the legal status of the occupied territories for purposes of government policy. The commission was headed by Edmond Levy, an interesting former Supreme Court justice and one of the only ones who is not a judicial activist leftist.
The Obama people are upset with the report (an indication of how good it is) and Israels moonbat Left is positively wetting itself in anguish.
Basically the report says that the West Bank Judea and Samaria are not occupied territories at all but, at most, disputed territories, something like the US-Canadian border areas were during parts of North American history.
As such, there is no reason why Israel cannot build there and even seize land there under eminent domain.
There is nothing in international law that would make settlements illegal. And they should thus be proclaimed by Israel to be completely legal. Whether or not Israel builds settlements then becomes a matter of Israeli interests and policy, not legal obstacles.

Israel needs to take control of the entire area and remove all Palestinians from the area!
The EU wants Israel off-balance so they can go in and reconquer Jerusalem for themselves. That’s why they’re on the “side” of the Palestinians for now.
Zech. 12:2 says Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness to all the surrounding peoples, when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem but I think it refers to Armaggedon.
You know, when you conduct a surprise attack on a country for the purposes of wiping out that country and killing every man, woman and child.
And lose that war in a big way.
You shouldn’t be surprised if you lose some territory.
Germany isn’t getting back western Poland.
Japan isn’t getting back Korea.
And the arabs are not getting back the West Bank.
"The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian people, since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct 'Palestinian people' to oppose Zionism."
PLO executive committee member Zahir Muhsein, March 31, 1977

Thanks Former Fetus.
The mass-murdering Muzzie mo-fo’s had plenty of time to live in peace, but have refused to do so for 14 centuries.
Let not there be a 15th.
