but it's also an issue for both sides to resolve. There's no inference or connection being made that without documentation of freezing construction in the areas of east Jerusalem, that eventually this part won't be stipulated as part of the Palestinian capital. I have relatives in the Jerusalem area and they would have preferred to include the freeze for east Jerusalem, but really they don't bear the essence or meaning of that decision at this juncture. I think I'm right and they're wrong - but they remain quiet about the issue, unlike me of course trying to be more diplomatic about the issue. A 3 month freeze entails a period of time to delineate the borders between the Palestinian state and Israel. If the Netanyahu government does not do this, then they're out of business.
