    Israel PROMISED that all illegal outposts will be vacated and demolished. They have been saying so since 2003, The Civil Administration and Barak again promised 'early' action last year. Israel PROMISED that there would be a settlement freeze for 10 months outside East Jerusalem. Talmon is outside East Jerusalem. Yet not only are 300 new Jewish houses permitted, they are permitted in an illegal settlement outpost. And the idea that the Civil Administration didn't know there was a school being built, when there were obviously contractors on site and concrete being poured, begs belief. This is not just a question about the whole settlement at Talmon, which is intended to create a sizeable new town on occupied land in the OPT, forget the peace talks. It is more a question of: can anyone believe a single word this Israeli government says? They are turning out to be a bunch of liars, deceivers and tricksters. No wonder Israel's international reputation stands at rock-bottom.
