    "Feltman also said that the U.S. wanted to see the Palestinian Authority resume negotiations with Israel in order to resolve the issue of West Bank settlements. Once borders were determined, said Feltman, the issue of settlements would be easier to solve. " Except..... that allows Israel to be intrasigent BECAUSE the status of ALL the settlements are "undecided" i.e. Israel will adopt the maximalist position that a border must includes ALL of those settlements inside "Israel". Bibi will be able to claim (correctly) that any OTHER border "pre-judges" the status of *this* or *that* settlement, and that everyone had agreed that the status of all settlements will be left till last. The USA has this all wrong, and the Pals have this exactly right i.e. the American proposal ensures Israel will scupper any negotiations that do take place.
