He stalled 'final status' negotiations while increasing Settlement building. Now he has only announced a 10 month 'freeze' in issuing new building permits. And promptly broke that. If Israel had ANY interest in peace negotiations it would be willing to freeze settlement building until negotiations were finished. Negotiations ARE finished. There will be no real 'freeze' and because of that there will be no intent to conclude negotiations. The ploy which worked many years ago is trite and obvious. Accept it Haaretz and the world, Israel will NEVER allow a Palestinian State and will annex ALL of Judea and Samaria as a 100% Jewish District. Can we not be honest folks? There is no room in Greater Israel for both Jews and Arabs, especially in Judea and Samaria. So how can the Palestinians be saved? Only an idiot would imagine Mubarak, president for life of Egypt, would give them a home. . .
