'Palestinians' continue to try

Yes, the 'Palestinians' continue to try... to commit terror attacks.
On Thursday, two attacks were foiled by troops near the West Bank settlement of Beit El.

Thursday's operations saw IDF forces locate and disarm two explosive devices near the settlement. A third device was found near Beit Omer, along with a set of IDF uniforms supposedly meant to be used as a disguise.

Soldiers patrolling neat Beit El located the two devices – one weighing 11lbs and the other at six – on a road marked for security forces' use only. Both devices were detonated by military sappers.

Earlier, a two-pound explosive device was found near Beit Omer, just south of Gush Etzion. It too was detonated by military sappers.
But the 'Palestinians' are ready to 'take control.' Just ask Keith Dayton.

Stop calling the towns, 'settlements'. This is an emotionally loaded word, one your enemy is using to beat you over the head with. Settlement has a connotation of a land grab. A town does not. A town is founded.

I am quite serious about this. You should root the word 'settlement' out of Israel's lexicon. And correct anyone who uses that word.

I always put that term in scare quotes to signify that I don't use it. The term was used without scare quotes in the original article I quoted. I can't change it for them (although I would like to).

By the way, the term 'settlement' doesn't have a connotation of a land grab so much as it has a connotation of being temporary. That's what bothers me about it.

Agreed. They are revanants. They are neither temporary nor illegal and the people living in them will resist the government's effort to brand them as "second class" Jews in the country. The outcome of the current battle of wills in the end will determine if the freeze is really going to be lifted next year or if it will remain in place for an indefinite period of time.
