Virtually all the construction being talked about is in the 3 major blocs of Jewish "border" towns every negotiation since 1993 has placed on the Israeli side of the final borders. A completely phony issue which has no impact whatsoever on the daily lives of anybody else in the "W. Bank". The issue is further made utterly irrelevant by Obama's failure to obtain any reciprocal gestures by the Arabs to facilitate negotiations. And the REAL obstacle to peace talks is that 40% of the PA Arabs reside in Gaza, whose Hamas regime rejects any peace with or recognition of Israel - Israel can hardly be expected to make peace with PA state on its east, while Gaza on its west wages Jihad "until final victory". Obama is now backing off from his idiotic position to save face - his "freeze" has no support in Congress or with the US voters - and the Arab States won't play ball in any case. Another Obama bungle, like Health Care and The Economy. With ZERO payback, why would Bibi freeze anything?
