Your wrong and right. I suspect it will push Germany towards supporting Palestinian statehood; but Gilo at no point was ever on the table. All accounts of the negotiations have Gilo well within Israel and part of the settlements that will be traded for in a one-for-one land swap. The better question is why did Netanyahu, who is supposed to be so "Western," in his thinking, choose to move forward with this stick in the eye just days after Germany and most of the Western world supported Israel's efforts at the UN?
