Israel has no intention of implementing what is required of it in terms of ending the settlements and having East Jerusalem serve as the capital of a free viable and independent Palestine. They will continue to defy the US and will state that they are not beholden to any commitment of former agreements. Also note the language of the spokesman who speaks of the absolute requirement of Israel's security but only the requirement of a Palestinian State. The question is how is the US prepared to deal with Israel's continuing intransigence, this from such a close "friend and ally".
