Something suggested they lived on the West Bank in a settlement. It no more lives there than I live there.
If it did live there, it would know about all the subsidies and grants the settlers get, which have been a drain on the Israeli middle class since the start of the occupation.
I'm glad it cited the Gaza settlements, since those residents got hundreds of thousands of dollars in compensation (sometimes more than a million) and many have decided that despite the magnanimity of the state, they won't move into permanent homes so that they can "punish" those whom they think mistreated them.
If they choose to live like that, so be it... No one's forcing them. They are just point-scoring.
