A fighter for settlements Dar al-Khalej, Abu Dhabi, June 2 In his meeting with leaders of the settlement movement, Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu confirmed that he fights for the settlers. “Nobody protects you more than I do,” he told them.

Netanyahu is not only fighting for them, he is one of them – or put simply, their leader.
