There is no reason for a freeze as a gesture in return for nothing. There is no reason for gestures: either there is peace or there isn't. If there is no peace then taking back jewish land is strategically sound. If there is peace the final agreements should determine all. The siplest gesture by the arabs was never forthcoming: ceasing anti semitic incitement. In fact Egypt, who is at "peace" with Israel temporarily, continues to incite anti semitism by state media. Even full peace with the arabs is suspect. Saudi oiulfields would yield more for Israel than "peace".
