As a fervent supporter of Israel I am quite dismayed by the refusal to extend the settlement freeze. Israel's security would not be harmed in any possible way by extending the freeze for an additional six months. Israel is bargaining with all the power and assets on its side. If Netanyahu truly desired a real peace he would extend an olive branch to Abbas by extending the freeze. What has Israel ever gained by trying to tell the Palestinians that Israel is the far stronger partner who will dictate their future to them. With the fingers of Iran, Syria, and Hezbollah getting closer and closer to the start of a war what possible harm can there be the Israel if they show the Palestinians and the world Israel is really serious about peace? Why is there this need to make the Palestinians grovel and beg for every inch?
