    No more free lunch. If Abbas wants a construction freeze imposed on 450,000 Israelis, like anything else negotiated, he is going to have to pay for it with something of equal value. That is how negotiations work. A fair price for Israel to demand - substantial monetary compensation for every Israeli family impacted by the "freeze" - retroactive to 10 months ago (since Abbas never did negotiate seriously in return). $50,000/month seems fair. Maybe Obama can pick up the tab, paying it out of the PA subsidy, which will discourage Abbas footdragging. Negotiations can not be conducted on the backs of 450,000 Israelis while the PLO pays nothing.
