    ... the reaction from the world press has been ho-hum, most of them stressing that this same proposal that has been quietly floating around for months, and the Palestinians have repeatedly rejected it. Which, in short, means that the world press has been selling this story as an attempt by Netanyahu at political point-scoring i.e. as an exercise in pointlessness, and not as a bold attempt at a breakthrough by Bibi the Brave. Now, as COMPLETE freeze would be news, but not this nonsense. As far as the world press has been concerned *this* is last nights news that is being served up again after reheating in the microwave. Look, you simply have to face facts: a "10 month settlement freeze" where 3,000 apartments KEEP BEING CONSTRUCTED can't be painted as a startling breakthrough, precisely because Netanyahu has been unofficially hawking this same "offer" around since he first came into office.
