"b" at Moon of Alabama raises a very good point: "Likud is likely to win next month' election in Israel. Its leader Netanjahu promisses to extend the Zionist settlements in the West Bank. This against international law, the roadmap and other peace plans. So while using Hamas charter in an argument as being an obstacle to peace is clearly bogus, it is obviously justified to point to Likud's charter as the real issue. So why have I never seen this used as an argument in the discussion? Maybe people just do not know. If that is the case, please spread the word." At MOA, here
The Likud charter from 1999 as available on www.knesset.gov.il says:
The Jewish communities in Judea, Samaria and Gaza are the realization of Zionist values. Settlement of the land is a clear expression of the unassailable right of the Jewish people to the Land of Israel and constitutes an important asset in the defense of the vital interests of the State of Israel. The Likud will continue to strengthen and develop these communities and will prevent their uprooting. ...The Government of Israel flatly rejects the establishment of a Palestinian Arab state west of the Jordan river.
