    Lets get some basic facts out of the way:- a. Abbas was aware of these planned homes. b. President Obama was aware of these homes. c. Everyone knew that Israel was building in this small area which is already surrounder completely by other Israeli towns. Now lets deal in facts,not fiction. a. The Dept of Building in Israel was just moving along with this and other planned developments,and this happemed to fall in line fopr announcement at this time.There was never a thought or feeling that this could in any way cause an issue. b.Abbas had already (as with Arafat) agreed to allow Isreal to keep certain areas in a Peace agreement,and Israel would cede other areas.They even have a map. c.Arafat made a peace deal with Israel,ONLY to renig at the last monent as he wanted more!!,as always...lets forget the untold amou tof funds he had in his swidd Bank that had to be renegotiated after he died. You can only make peace when you are fair,and non-biased.Pres.
