Reader comment on: Reassessing Israeli Settlements

Israel should stand strong and maintain all the settlements they have and not divide this land that was given to them, by God. All Israeli governments have supported settlements-which were permitted by the Oslo accords- because these reflected an Israeli consensus and, ast least initially, enjoyed the backing of U.N. resolutions: U.N. security council resolution 242 (1967) demanded only that Israel withdraw from territories it conquered-deliberately omitting "the" to indicate Israel's right to settle in those territories.
It is also a problem that Palestinians say that Jews Stole their lands, in reference to territory captured by Israel in 1967. To suggest the entire West Bank is Palestinian accepts a face value claim that is not grounded in International Law. The deception goes on in the Palestinian arena!
