Don't be fooled by Netanyahu's sleight of hand on settlements – Lara Friedman and Hagit Ofran – Haaretz 02.11.15
Rejecting any claim that settlements play a part in the current violence, Netanyahu has adopted data showing he's built less than his predecessors. But don't believe the statistics. The totality of the facts tells the real story – a story of a long history of deep and active support for settlement expansion, checked only intermittently and temporarily, for tactical political purposes.                                                                                                                                                                     Read analysis here
