Israel knows it can get away with it because they will just label Muslims as "terrorists" if they try to do anything about it. Yet when Israel use their tanks, rockets, planes (and they even have nuclear weapons) noone will think twice.
Also, I know everyone is condemning Israel building these settlements but I think it's part of a greater scheme to provoke Palestinians to cause more violence and then the statehood bid can be vetoed by America on grounds that "direct peace negotiations must resume, not U.N. resolutions".
I don't know why everyone can't see what's REALLY going on here.
Has much to do with AIPAC lining up our Politicians' pockets, Christian/Jewish Zionism, and the ignorance of American's affiliating all Arabs as terrorists even though they couldn't name an instance (credible source) where America was attacked by Palestinians (Jews immigrating from Brooklyn to settle on stolen Palestinian land do no count as they are thieves and commiting a crime themselves, furthermore the radical muslim attacks on the US, for example 911 and the first WTC bombing had no Palestinians involved in either). However, I could name numerous instances where our "ally" Israel is clearly more of a threat to the U.S. then Palestine, Unfortunately most of our elected officials have placed the interests of other countries and corporations above our own.
