LOL uhhm how so?  They're mainly building them in the West Bank, where they don't even have any legal claim to.
The "West Bank" was created from armistice lines in 1949. The other side never recognized that as a border and never signed off on a treaty. So the Arabs' claim to that land is highly dubious. If the various Arab parties vying for control in the West Bank got together and gave Israel recognition, peace and assurance that they would keep attacks under control Israel would gladly cede control and would probably uproot settlements. In 2005 in Gaza Ariel Sharon uprooted all settlements in Gaza and evacuated all of the Jewish population. It didn't end well as we now all know. That's why stopping settlements is currently suicidal or worse.
Trump - Watch what he does, not how he says it.
