Having provided a 10 month "freeze" for atmosphere, the proper course for Bibi is now to instruct Mitchell to either deliver serious peace negotiations from the PA within one month, or the freeze will be permanently cancelled, and Israel will feel free to build where it likes, including in E-1, which will enjoy a massive Jewish construction boom whether Obama likes it or not. After all, having failed to deliver on any Arab reciprocity at all for Israeli concessions, Obama will have no leg to stand on, and the US voters and Congress were solidly opposed to his "freeze" demands to start with. The PA have failed to negotiate seriously since Rabin allowed the PLO to return from exile in Tunis, they have not honored one single commitment they made, or altered in any way Arafat's initial outlandish demands. With Hamas and its Iranian rockets in Gaza, PA has no credible way to recognize Jewish Israel and abide by a peace treaty, and they get no state anywhere without doing that.
