This "freeze" is a sham. Netanyahu always intended it to be a sham. Barak is already treating is as a sham. Every member of Netahyahu's cabinet understands that it is a sham. The Americans know it is a sham. The Europeans know it is a sham. The Palestinians are loudly shouting that it is a sham. Because It Is. The only question that now remains is wether the Americans and the Europeans decide that it is in their best interests to play a game of pretendies with Netanyahu i.e. to act as if it isn't a sham even though they know that it is a sham. That's the only thing that now matters i.e. wether the Americans and the EU 1) mouth the word "unprecedented", or 2) mouth this sentence: "err, sorry, what's actually being frozen here?" If it's (1) then Bibi "wins", and if it's (2) then Bibi is in a Spot O' Bother, because he really can't answer that question with anything even approaching "honesty".
