Big deal he's cracking down on illegal outposts built on Palestinian land - how many is that compared to the illegal settlements he's "legalized" at the same time? So what is the net gain for the number of settlements Israel considers legal? Nothing more than a slight of hand move which only serves to increase the settlements foothold in the WB. Between this, and the fact that there's NO indication of him coming up with any groundshaking proposal - no rumors of talks with Kadima or other preparations for the breaking up of his coalition - I doubt very much that change in his policy is going to be anything of substance. We'll see what he has to offer the Palestinians, there's a reason that world leaders don't trust him, and that distrust means they'll be paying extra close attention to what he's got to offer and its terms. Anything that's substantially less than what the international community envisions based on the 1967 borders just isn't going to get him anywhere in except perhaps deeper in the hole he's been digging for himself in their eyes. The die for the Palestinian state has been cast - so to speak - and he'll need to pretty much pattern his proposal to at least approximate it, or he risks further alienating himself and Israel from the rest of the world.
