Robert Teeter wrote The entire question of settlements, for instance, has been ignored. Surely Palestinians having their homes bulldozed and then jewish settlements built on top of them has something to do with why Israel is so hated? === It is funny, but it looks that no one outside Israel knows that no settlement is built at place of arab village or even arab field. By Turkish law land belong to one who built house or planted tree there. Israel have precedent law system so the law still works. In Kiryat Arba near Hevron several arab owned fields divide parts of the city. Most of settlements are built on hilltops because valleys nearby are owned by arabs. In Israel you can still find abandoned arab villages that hold valuable land but can not be taken or built-on.
