    Items that were previously GIVEN to Israel by nature of our special relationship have all now been made contingent to Israel's accept of the freeze. In other words, 20 F-35s, continued vetoes in the UNSC, continued cooperation in preventing Israel from having to sign the NPT, from having to letUN HUman rights inspectors in without any punishment for refusing, and shielding from nearly every derivation of international norm and law Israel violates in the future. These were ALREADY given. Now, if Israel doesn't come back with an agreement to simply freeze, ALL of those items are off the table. That's basically a whole year's worth of aid to Israel. Haaretz should have someone write an op-ed to explain this to everyone as it seems they didn't understand it.
