    "Surprised by the U.S. administration's public condemnation"? Wake up. The Palestinians have much to atone for, but this is not a blank check for Israel to treat them anyway they please. We do not seek pleasant apologies and promises of smoother coordination of future settlement efforts, we seek an end to settlement activity and a negotiated peace. U.S. pays a great deal for the status quo, in cash, diplomatic effort, foreign prestige, and in all probability in oil prices. The rest of the world pays heavily for the ongoing conflict as well. This is not the age of imperialism, when a nation in need of land, resources, even people could just take it from a weaker neighbor. We want progress toward peace, which means judging your opponents by their recent actions and not endlessly punishing them for activities 5, 10, 30 years ago. Are you taking an dunham, or destroying a home for each qassam fired from East Jerusalem or the West Bank? No, whatever looks desirable. Shame!
