    and will instead compile a list of U.S. freebies to be taken away - permanently - if Israel continues settlement building and refuses to come to final terms. Positive incentives have never worked, and it takes no stretch of the imagination to picture a group of leprechauns(no offense meant to wee folk), dancing around a pot of gold...laughing gleefully and patting each other on the back for 'pulling another one off'. The ONLY way for the U.S. to be taken seriously by Israel is the threat of taking away what it's already being given. And considering the illegality of the settlement building, which the U.S. recognizes, the "demand" that Israel freeze it or face consequences should be for an indefinite period - NOT just for short periods of time. This is another big part of the problem that's led to 40 years of NO PROGRESS.
