    I struggle to see what overall point you are trying to make.

    Stopping the settlements was the single requirement of Israel in order to proceed with the peace talks (which are intended to foster a lasting peace). They refused to do this, which lead to the peace talks collapsing once again. The fact that they are not willing to take the first small steps to pursue a peaceful solution demonstrates that they have no interest in doing so.

    It is naive to believe that the conflict is simply a matter or 'Israel defending itself from Palestinian terrorists'.
    im not saying theyre in the right for building more settlements, the current israeli government are definately not interested in peace (its a coalition with small ultra-nationalist parties)

    but the 'peace' talks wont end with peace if israel left the west bank. hamas could be democratically elected (and then cease to be democratic) in the west bank, and ending the israeli occupation would enable hamas to fire rockets from areas which are densely populated with civillians, just like in gaza. hamas are pretty ineffective in gaza now, israelis are safe but only at the expense of the gaza economy.

    You need to visit the israel/Palestine III thread; they could do with objective input.
