    usually when the phrase "illegal settlement" appears it is a reference to the entire concept of the settlements in the West Bank.

    Here you have a genuinely illegal settlement - and a successful court case to defeat that settlement.

    There is a group on the extreme right of the settler movement in Israel that is happy to steal land. There is no question that the Israeli government should be doing more to stop this. At the same time, this situation is relatively uncommon as a percentage of the total area taken up by the settlements themselves.

    Also - this is why its important in a democracy to have an independent court system.

    If you believe that ALL criticism of Israel is antisemitic, you're an idiot.
    If you believe that NONE of the criticism of Israel is antisemitic, you're a fool.
    If you call EVERYONE who criticizes Israel antisemitic, you're just an a$$hole
