The israeli government need not apologise for a thing! Nobody believed their promise to curb the settlement expansion anyway. Its now an accepted fact that Israel covets Palestinian land and is capable of the most obscene behaviour to get that land. The U.S govt - and all its subordinates across the globe accept that.And anyone who doesn't is labelled an anti-Semite. Nice n simple.
