Irrespective of what you think about Jewish settlement beyond Green Line, I do not understand why such a fuss about this specific area of Jordan valley. Separation barrier has been there for some years. The de facto anexation and thus future border has been a fact. I´d rather be interested in knowing the progress of separation barrier in Maale Adumim and Ariel area. It is the real geopolitical battlefield. The leaks from Abbas-Olmert negotiations show that Pals claim those both areas for their state.
