They are considered illegal under international law, although Israel disputes this

In fact, it's a two-stroke signing off by the Beeb.
The Boom-Bustic utterance goes like this:

"Nearly half a million Jews live in more than 100 settlements built since Israel's 1967 occupation of the West Bank and East Jerusalem."

Then comes the flatulent political correctness bit:

"They are considered illegal under international law, although Israel disputes this."

My word, who cares whether Israel disputes it or not? They are ILLEGAL UNDER INTERNATIONAL LAW - FULL STOP!

And forget all this beating around the Bush (House) "consideration" stuff...

For some time now, I've grown irritated by this particular voice-over. So, I gave it a Google search to see whether I was the only person who felt this way.

It turned out that I wasn't. While this answering-machine type of signing-off phrase leaves quite a lot to be desired, there are certain individuals like the top of the Google charts (on this particular topic!), Keith, who uses his licensing fee rights to try and mimic Bibi (Netanyahu)'s hubris while posing as the concerned public opinion voice...

Notwithstanding the fact that Israel is the only country in the world who can do or say or dispute anything it pleases since it can instantly brandish the infamous anti-Semitic accusations to its critics, turning these occupied lands into an animal pen, a gulag for the 21st century, is something which no dogma, religion or political correctness gone mad can ever justify.
