I just don't understand how an officially sanctioned fairly significant leader in country founded on religious principles could say something like that. Doesn't scripture encourage community? Why would such principles be ignored. When almost the entire world is telling you you're doing the wrong thing, it might be smart to take a look in the mirror.
Could one argue that Palestinians should do the same? Sure. But that's no excuse. Set the example and practice what you preach. What is this third grade?? How can anyone defend this world destabilizing settlement maneuver with a straight face? Nearly the whole world has condemned it! Why do we keep funding this nonsense? The parody headline from the Onion a few weeks ago is every nearly imitating real life: "Israel Calls For Increase In U.S. Taxes To Fund Attacks On Gaza."
