This is an article on settler couple Karni Eldad and Shlomo Bashan, who very recently has moved in the Teqoa settlement, south of Jerusalem, having received a permit to build a new house. None of those are happy over president Obama, and have fears PM Netanyahu may put an end to future settlements in response to US military action against Iran.
