Of special interest: "If arrived a letter from the president of the United States stating that there could be immediate construction in Jerusalem, and that after 90 days there could be unlimited construction anywhere, we would think about abstaining"! - Any questions over what's being anticipated here?

Hold off for 3 months, and forevermore be able to throw it into the face of the U.S. every time it brings up the settlements!
