So Israel will agree to a freeze for six months -- except for completing the 2500 units already underway and making five hundred new starts. This is just about the pace construction has been occurring at anyway. For example, in all of 2007, 717 new starts were authorized -- that is to say, an average of 359 in each six month period. I think what I love most about Israel is the HONESTY. Israel always does its best to make sure everyone understands exactly what it is doing. Like now. We will have a 'freeze' that will consist of no change at all.
