One more news story response

How's this: Israel cracks down on illegal outposts, and brings in the settlers they didn't sanction. Good right? Well, to compensate, the illegal settlers are getting 50 new residences in existing West Bank Jewish settlements. Refusing settlement freeze because of Natural Growth my butt! Settlement growth seems mostly unnatural, and now is apparently also a safe haven for ILLEGALS. When Palestinians are evicted and their homes demolished or given to Jewish Israelis because they're living there "illegally," do they get ANY compensation? They depend on their neighbors, their families, the international community's outrage and support, or they simply leave. They go to Jordan, they come to the US. whatever. They don't get offered new homes somewhere else provided by their governments. What governments? That's the real question, I suppose.
