Seems like the US will be giving way more than needed to Israel just for 2 months of a settlement freeze. I wonder what kind of freeze will it be. Will it be the same as the partial construction freeze? Because if that's the case, then looks like Israel really is winning: it gets all these great guarantees, MORE than 3 billion dollars of annual military aid (3 billion isn't enough apparently) and still gets to build in certain areas. What a deal! Bibi would be stupid to reject this. And the Palestinians well, they seem to never get any of these wonderful guarantees.
