    Israel was/is under no legal obligation for a "total freeze" on settlement building in any agreement anywhere. While it is what the Pals want, Israel has never agreed to it, they have always done limited and temporary agreements. When the Pals have violated their agreements they rightfully lifted those bans on settlement building. For instance after BiBi gave his peace speech at Bar-llan, Abbas responded with a speech to return to violence to achieve its goals. Hamas responded that they would never accept Israel's "right to exist" and would only agree to a ten year Hudna(ceasefire). In return Hamas wanted a country based on the 67 borders without recognizing Israel's rights. Who would go for such a ludicrous offer. Israel lifted dozens checkpoints in the WB and settler was shot in his car the next day where one checkpoint was lifted. We all want peace but the Pals don't even have a unified government to negotiate with. Dangerous simplifications of the issues for peace from Lula.
