    The only reason you give deadlines on how long the freeze will last is if its going to go on the record and be made official policy. Lets assume construction unofficially ends for 6 months what happens when that self imposed deadline runs out? Does anybody seriously believe Abbas will say you kept your part of the bargin now I will keep mine so build with my blessings or will he throw another temper tantrum demanding a full freeze or will he say lets have another unofficial 6 month freeze? This is another one of Abbases tricks and Bibis coalition partners & members of the Likud party are not fools. He will be accused of trying to deceive the public & he even risks being replaced as head of Likud. He might be able to pull off ab official 10 month freeze in Judea & Samaria only but anything else will be seen as treachery and he will be out of a job. As for Barak he was one of the most unpopular PMs when he was in charge and right now he is defense minister not foreign minister.

For French teen studying in Israel, it's all about being a Jew among Jews

Arrivals / Departures: Anti-Semitism in France is certainly not the reason why this teen chose to come to Israel; an Israeli whose relatives perished in the Holocaust finds living in Berlin 'perfectly fine.'
