The raped landscape

Israel built up the settlements with the use of large scale, industrial grade building equipment, and in the process it raped the landscape of not only the Palestinian territories but also the heart and soul of the cities of Israel, not the least of which, Jerusalem. 
That's what we saw when we first landed in Israel after a ten-year hiatus. We saw the architectural impact of the settlement policy on the urban look and feel of the country, and the arrogance and stupidity of those planners.
