Expert maneuvering by Netanyahu around the core-issues. Employing his usual style of sophistry and vacuous rhetoric he is attempting to hoodwink the public into believing that all construction in the West Bank is proceeding "according to law". What he doesn't mention is - being very skilled in re-arranging the laws or in establishing new guidelines in order to suit his purposes - that the building will continue - in contravention to the requests made by the U.N. and the Mideast Quartet, and thus ultimately sabotaging the entire peace-process. And his claim that the announcement of the construction of 2000 new units in a contested East Jerusalem neighborhood - following on the heels of the P..A.'s acceptance as member of UNESCO - should NOT be construed as "punishment" is so blatantly mendacious that even people not familiar with his pattern can perceive it as such.. A new partner for peace is sorely needed.
