The settlers' policy is to "punish" the government every time an official action not to their liking is taken. (This policy is called "price tag", where the government must pay the price.) We are not dealing with individuals' lawlessness, but with an organized one. In the present case, the traffic disruption was organized by the "Samaria and Benjamin regional councils". It makes sense that the general public of settlers, or those councils should pay a price. Members of those councils, and the councils themselves, can be fined. But an even stronger message can be delivered to the lawless. The government should extend the construction freeze by ONE month. This has nothing to do with ideology, but only with law and order. A good warning to the settlers to cease and desist, or they will pay dearly. Note that one form or another of extending the freeze is necessary, and such a step will bring an immediate diplomatic benefit.
