I am amazed by your shallow moral blind-sidedness on the so-called "freeze". Over the past 10 months, 13,000 babies were born to Israeli families there, who need additional living space. Those Israelis need schools, synagogues, clinics business space. Israel's demand to continue natural growth construction within the existing footprint of only the towns that everybody knows Israel will keep (J'lem, Adumin, Etzion bloc, Ariel, Canada Park(aka Latrun) is a fair position that tortures nobody. The PLO's "total freeze" demand" is a form of terrorism that seeks to achieve what snipings and suicide bombings could not - forcing Israelis out of their homes. There should be no "freeze" after the 26th unless Israel is generously compensated by either PA concessions or a few billion bucks from Obama as restitution for double crossing Israel on the last 10 month "freeze" - no PA negotiations and no Arab world gestures - all promised by Obama and not delivered.
