Israeli Illegal Settlement Facts

Amid all the propaganda about "unauthorized settlements" and "natural growth" coming from an expansionist Israeli regime determined (apparently) to subvert any move toward resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, it is worth noting the facts:

More than 280,000 Israelis live in the settlements, in addition to more than 2 million Palestinians living in the West Bank. An additional 180,000 Israelis live in East Jerusalem, where the Palestinians hope to establish their capital.

That's 460,000 illegal intruders who have stolen land from Palestinians, forced those Palestinians from their homes, and squatted on land to which they have no right: 460,000 people who need to return to their own country.
