Well the violence hasn't stopped on the Pal side, nor have the Pals formally renounced violence, etc. It strikes me that the effect of violence can't be undone. Construction can be undone in a variety ways, not the least of which is in a final settlement, if the construction ends up in Pal territory, Pals get the improvements. So, who is being unreasonable here????? This is just a power play, the need to demonstrate to the Islamic world that there are severe limits within which Pals are prepared to negotiate with the Jews. Having said all that, if it were my decision, I would suspend construction and if I were the decision making on the other side, I would get on with negotiations. There is nothing more important than the security and safety of both sets of people and allowing them to get on with normal living where they can pursue, health, education and prosperity. Surely everything else is secondary.
