From the Israeli daily newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth, via Americans for Peace Now:
They are the focus of President Obama’s interest in the Middle East and are even liable to cause a head-on collision between Israel and the US. But what is really going on in the settlements—are more housing units being built? Are plans being frozen? And how many new houses are being built at any given moment? Yedioth Ahronoth presents: Judea and Samaria, the situation today.
Settler representatives claim that the goal of the construction is to meet the natural growth needs of the population. On the other hand, left wing organizations claim that massive construction serves new settlers. But they all—from Amana, the settlement branch of Gush Emunim in Judea and Samaria to Peace Now to the Defense Ministry and the Housing Ministry, agree on one datum: in recent years there has been more growth in the settlements than in all the Israeli governments ever before.

"It is an interesting and somewhat macabre parlor game to play at a large gathering of one’s acquaintances: to speculate who in a showdown would go Nazi. By now, I think I know. I have gone through the experience many times—in Germany, in Austria, and in France. I have come to know the types: the born Nazis, the Nazis whom democracy itself has created, the certain-to-be fellow-travelers. And I also know those who never, under any conceivable circumstances, would become Nazis."
