That was almost thirty years ago and the same points still apply! So let me summarize:
Most of what is said about settlements in the West isn’t true.
If you are really being so hurt by the existence and growth of settlements then make peace fast and get rid of them.
If you don’t want to make peace fast and get rid of them then settlements aren’t your problem; Israel’s existence is. And that means you have an unsolvable problem and someone will reprint the above column about thirty years from now.
