I thought Israel's economy could not sustain their Army's protection of the settlers? This could turn out to be a matter of being politically penny wise and pound foolish.

Any Home Depots in the West Bank?



The disengagement plan entails evacuating the much smaller settler population in Gaza as well as four isolated settlements in the West Bank.

The tenders include 604 homes in Betar Ilit, 214 in Ariel, 141 in Ma'aleh Adumim (will be appended to Jerusalem) and 42 in Karnei Shomron.
