Israel is wrong about the settlements, but that doesn't mean random Israelis going about their business (no even in that area) should be killed in terrorist attacks. What kind of logic is that?
If they stopped all expansion and proved that they were willing to concede a little and that they actually wanted peace and still got attacked I would back them 100% against any enemy. Because then it would be proven that Isreal does want peace and it is not about the land. But this expansion BS is like a child pushing his parents buttons to see how much he can get away with. Until the expansion stops it looks like Isreal is just doing it for the land and proving that they could care less about peace. If Isreal wants the world to believe they want peace they need to stop telling us and start showing us. Make a gesture of good will and stop expansion. That will clear Isreal of any accusations of wrong doing and show they do want peace. If after that the attacks continue it will clearly show their neighbors are in the wrong.
