If the Israeli side finds it impossible to live with extending the building moratorium, and the Palestinians find it equally impossible to continue talks without extending the moratorium; There is a way out of this, but the two have to agree on it. Decide now and reach an agreement on final status borders, as first order of business. You will be surprised how other pieces would fall in place,and Israel will be free to resume construction anywhere in the areas that will be under its jurisdiction. Obviously the situation as it is: No agreement on borders, no agreement on extending moratorium, yet continuation of direct talks; is a recipe for failure and an end to Abbas regime.
