    Netanyahu has no sincerity, when he speaks to the rest of the world. He launches every backburner construction project he can find, then announces the "painful sacrifices" of a ten month freeze? I am so sickened that Hillary congratulated him on his unprecedented gall. He seeks diplomatic kudos at a cost of nothing. Meanwhile, the spoiled rotten settlers don't even need prodding to complain about a ten-month red tape delay on new projects. The settlement process makes me sick. It's goals are immoral and illegitimate. And some of the nastiest settlers are American rejects who think it's some kind of game hunt or cowboys and indians adventure. Bibi - please - shut up until you have something real to offer. Smoke, mirrors, stalling, and self congratulation as more facts on the ground - oops - appear, are all nonsense not worthy of a real national leader.

    from the article: Netanyahu: Settlement freeze is 'one-time, temporary' move
