    The Israeli govt have put forward a plan to offer compensation to Jewish settlers who must move from the occuppied territories of Palestine.
    The plan also includes fines for those refusing to move.

    Have I got this right ?
    Some people moved into a temporarily occupied zone and built their houses there.
    They knew that there was every likelihood that the land would have to be returned to those from which it had been taken, but built there anyway.
    Now that the likelihood has become hard fact they've spat the dummy and have lobbied for compensation for something they knew would happen.

    Is it just me not thinking straight, or are some people hell bent on becoming a caricature of parodic stereptype ?
     
  2. Due to one simple reason. They want the WHOLE Cake when it comes to Historical Palestine. They also want Sinai, Lebanon and the Golan(Syrian territory). The people who live in those territories are pretty Orthodox and hate the Arabs to the Guts. The Believe that Hashem gave them this land and it should not be given to any non-jew. They make up a pretty small minority, but are VERY Agressive (sp?) and would do anything to stop the Army or Israeli Forces from Dismantling their Illegal Posts in Gaza and the West Bank. They are trying to do what they couldnt do in Sinai after the Israelis Left. Keep their Posts and fight to Death.

    They have a similiar Ideology to that of Hamas. The whole OR Death! :x :x

    PS. Its too late for Sharon to Open his eyes now, He was the one who allowed all this construction... Its Just too late!
     
  3. The pullout from Gaza may bring down Sharon. There are reports that senior IDF officers will resign over this issue.
     
  4. Hes gone anyways... I just hope Netenyahu or Barak dont win either.
     
  5. Part of the problem is proportional representation. Israeli governments rarely get a large majority, and consequently often rely on the support of small religious parties to stay in office. Quite often the price of support is concessions for said religious groups. Hence it's very difficult for the government of the day to tackle problems such as the settlements and still stay in power.
