Livni is talking nonsense, another lie in this game Israel has been playing making it seem as if Israel is sincere. Israel committed to a prisoner release; they reneged. Palestinians gave them a few more days. They still did not. Then the announced they were building 700 new housing units in EJ and she has the chutzpah to blame it on the Palestinians. Sanctions will only backfire on Israel. Abbas has the trump card and he must now do everything in his power to get membership in the ICC and begin proceedings against Israel. That should be their response to these sanctions from the occupier.
