Beyond the settlers' needs?

Here's an article in today's Daily Telegraph that shows how far Israel's star has fallen in the eyes of the establishment.
Israel has been accused of orchestrating a deliberate land grab in the West Bank by allocating 11 times as much land to Jewish settlements as is needed.

It has also been accused of doing nothing to stop settlers from spilling out of allocated areas and stealing even more land from their Palestinian neighbours.

The twin strands of Israel's land policy in the occupied West Bank is described by Peace Now, a respected Israeli land rights group, as a "deliberate and underhand" policy of expansion.
Hurrah for Peace Now! How good of them to notice the "needs" of the settlers. But what of the Telegraph? Time was that they would never had touched an article like that. And how is Conrad Black these days?
