As usual the Arabs want to be rewarded for their recalcitrance. A year ago Netanyahu, under severe US pressure, agreed to suspend building in Judea and Samaria IN EXCHANGE for direct peace talks. Israel kept its end of the bargain while the Arabs sat on their hands and refused to talk. Now they are willing to talk but want a limited term concession – that was kept to the letter – to be extended. Is there no limit to their forked-tongued nerve? If they are only willing to talk while construction is suspended they had an entire year in which to do so.
