COMMON SENSE IS BREAKING OUT ALL OVER

From today’s LA Times (intrusive registration required, or just use ‘laexaminer’/’laexaminer’): 20 Settlements Will Be Razed. It sure would have been smart if they had explained that they were being razed because they were illegal, even under Israeli law, and not just that they were because of ‘the difficulty of protecting them’.
But sometimes people do the right things for the wrong reason. The outcomes are often good anyway.

    In this case the wrong thing for the wrong reason. These are mainly abandoned tiny little outposts and the Settlers council have quietly agreed to let the Defence minister ‘Fuad’ have his way in order to look good with the upcoming Party meeting.See http://www.haaretzdaily.com/hasen/pages/ShArt.jhtml?itemNo=181801&contrassID=2&subContrassID=1&sbSubContrassID=0“>this article for more details.Recent polls have shown that a majority of Israelis want out of Gaza and the West Bank and want that now regardless of any peace agreement. I agree with them.
