The extremists on both sides need to be reigned in. It's the Jewish extremists who are grabbing what they believe is a god given right to the whole land.
Once again, it's religion that's causing all the strife.

Expansionism is not exclusive to Jewish extremist settlers. The Israeli state could easily stop them. But it doesn't.

The government can only do so much. These people have a big block of votes that can turf out a government at an election.
No different to the people of Gaza voting in a terrorist government.
