Illegal Israeli settlements

Kevin Drum has an interesting, but not really surprising, post about illegal Israeli settlements. The information comes from a Peace Now report.

The long and short of it is that 39% of all land used by Israeli settlements in the West Bank is legally the private property of Palestinians. Like I said, this is not surprising, or even news for Palestinians. The newsworthy part is that this figure comes directly from Israel’s Civil Administration.

There’s also this first-hand account from the LA Times.
