I support Israel on most issues, but the West Bank settlements are a decisive issue even within Israel. I happen to side with a very strong minority of Israeli citizens who oppose West Bank settlements. Furthermore, continuation of building new West Bank settlements makes a two-state solution nearly impossible. And I'm doubtful that *any* kind of "lasting" peace can be achieved without providing *some* kind of "home" for the Palestinian people - a whole nationality with no where to go. After almost 2000 years without a homeland, the majority of the Israeli people should have some understanding of the problem. Giving the Palestinians *somewhere* to have a homeland won't solve *all* of the problems in the Middle East. But I'm doubtful that it's even possible to make headway without providing somewhere for the Palestinians to go and feel at least somewhat safe. And only slightly less than half of Israeli citizens seem to agree based on previous elections.
