Israel defied its Western allies Tuesday by expanding the number of officially sanctioned settlements in the West Bank for the first time in 12 years.

Ignoring U.S. pleas made only the day before, Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, took the unprecedented step of retroactively legalizing three settler outposts built on Palestinian land.

The announcement represented a significant victory for the radical pro-settler lobby in Netanyahu's right-wing coalition government, but was seen by Palestinian officials as a particularly provocative rebuff to their latest conditions for peace talks.

Most were built by radical settlers, often on privately owned Palestinian land, with the intention of staking Judaism's God-given claim to the Holy Land in its entirety.

It's obvious it's not a step toward peace.
Let's just hope they will reverse their decision.

it's been 44 years they've under occupation. it's safe to say the israeli's aren't going anywhere.

it's time for plan C. plan A being violent resistance. plan B being renouncing violent resistance..

maybe the palestinians can all learn to play the guitar and sing folk songs.

or hire seinfeld to do some stand up.

its time for a one state solution

Israel want to continue to seize Land
Palestians want their land back

they should go in for a one state solution
the way Israelis are going about things a Two state solution is becoming impossible
