My response to Bob's question: "Rabbi what's with the new setllements and that roadmap? This would be good for you to explain".
I could not tell you what is new with the settlements and the roadmap - Israel will no longer answer my questions to them. The settlements are in direct violation of the partition plan of 1947 - period. Israel has no right to place settlements in land allocated to the Palestinian people. As for the roadmap - Sharon is one of the detractors to any sort of peaceful resolution. I covered this in an earlier article - take time to read it please.
Of course, why should I know what is happening in Israel - I don't live there.
Indeed, how dare they run US-independent policy? They should have followed the example of the European Union that turned independent states of the Old World into US-ditto entities
