The one I've explained to carp is Res 181 which defines the borders of the Jewish state. Six and I have pointed out to carp that Israeli settlements on the West Bank are in violation of 181 and that his charactersation of Israel having complied with it is wrong every time he says it.
False equivalence - the point is that since the settlements are illegal the Palestinians never should give in whereas the Israelis have no choice but to bow to the will of the international community and the rule of law.
Carter did a lot for Israel as did Clinton.Don't condone Carter.

I don't know about any construction in the annexed buffer zones?
The obvious answer: the numerous settlements in the Israeli-occupied West Bank. Under international law an occupying power does not have the right to settle land which it occupies. (As opposed to formally annexing the land as their own, which Israel has not done in the case of the West Bank) ...
