>relocate them to Israel and compensate them.
>The Peace Now survey of 3,200 households in 127 settlements, which was

>Fifty-nine percent said they considered financial compensation the best
>solution to the issue.
>The Palestinians bitterly oppose Israeli settlements in the West Bank and

>are an obstacle to peace. Peace Now is a fierce opponent of settlements.
>A peacemaking formula drafted last year by a commission headed by former

>"The vast majority (77 percent) of settlers chose to live in a settlement for
>reasons of quality of life," said the survey, conducted between April and
>The poll had a margin of error of plus or minus three percentage points.
