    This is what's being anticipated by Bibi's zealots, and it takes no stretch of the imagination to realize that they'll be willing to suffer a 90 day hiatus in construction in exchange for the indefinite carte blanche that will follow it. There'll be NO agreement coming from it, mind you - they've no intention of that - but the U.S. promise to not ask for another extension will be interpreted and used by Israel as a pledge not to 'ever again' raise the suggestion that it stop its settlement building enterprise. There can BE no extension because the freeze has already expired. The original request was for an extension and the "promise" was that another extension would not be requested once it expired. But this will be the implementation of NEW three month freeze, and with the promise that another will not be sought...? - Not quite the same thing, is it? So unless things have been specifically worded otherwise and the public hasn't been given the full extent and breadth of this deal...then to say it's a piss poor move by the U.S. is an understatement.
