Victory for Palestinians or NOT?

The Good News:

Israel's Supreme Court orders state to dismantle largest West Bank outpost
Haaretz Daily Newspaper | Israel News

Unprecedented ruling states that Migron must be razed by April 2012; Israeli government had admitted outpost was built on lands belonging to Palestinians, but has thus far failed to dismantle it. 

 The Bad News:

The decision to dismantle an outpost as large as Migron is likely to cause a political storm in the West Bank settlements. 

This has been going on for years will the military really force them out? We will have to wait and see. Will Israel just increase its land confiscation?  You know: "settlement natural growth," declaring more "state land" from an Ottoman law (LOL- I can't help but laugh at this one), and "purchasing" land from Palestinians but they can't show the paper work for fear of Palestinian aggression. All of this is sickening.

More Bad News:
Dozens of MKs to Netanyhu: Solve Israel housing crisis by building in West Bank

MKs, cabinet ministers call on Netanyahu to consider all possible options to solve housing crisis, including settling of 'tens of thousands of citizens in Judea and Samaria, as well as Jerusalem'.
