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. This only means that Netanyahu supports the expansion of settlement building while making the dream of a Palestinian state an impossible one. It has become known that settlers consider the West Bank a part of the lands of Israel and call it “Judea and Samaria.” Those people oppose negotiations, object to the concept of having a Palestinian state and don ’t see a problem in killing Palestinians and taking their property. They come from a racist background, thinking they are sacred, as “God’s chosen people.” Yet Netanyahu tells these people he is fighting for them and leads peace talks with the Palestinians.

How is a settlement possible with people holding on to a racist ideology and a belief that they are superior? Netanyahu is not only fighting for them, he is one of them – or put simply, their leader.
