If Israel will not suspend building at the request of the US, the EU, personal requests from friends, etc. then it is time for the US to reevaluate our support. Support of Israel by the US has cost money and allies, has emboldened Iran and others, and has encouraged continued building that no one except Israel considers legitimate. Israel's refusal to halt construction while negotiations are underway is proof of Israel's insincerity. I, for one, am an old friend of your country who has changed his mind.
