    It seems to me to be absolutely right to continue with planning and all other official business in Jerusalem both east and west as is required. Far from being an obstacle to peace it is an incentive. If it is understood that life goes on regardless of whether the Palestinians come to the table or not they will come running. Freeze everything and they have all the time in the world. It seems Obama and company should stop pampering to Abas and forge ahead. Plans that wouldn't come to fruition for years are not the obstacle.
