Is it real or is it bravado?

Prime Minister Netanyahu asked everyone to observe the 'settlement freeze,' but promised that when it's over, there will be more building.
"Even if Abu Mazen (PA President Mahmoud Abbas) will come in another eight months with the message 'Peace Now,' we will start building as before. The cabinet's decision has a deadline," said Netanyahu in the weekly cabinet meeting.
While I hope and pray that's true, I fear that it's not. Do you really believe that if Abu Bluff comes to the table the day before the ten months expire, Obama won't demand that they be extended?

What could go wrong?

The conventional wisdom is the Palestinians want peace. That's flat out wrong, however. Even the existing freeze is not good enough for them unless its extended to east Jerusalem and even then the Palestinians would continue inventing other excuses as reason not to talk to Israel.

The existence of the revanants have nothing to do with their refusal to come to the table. That's not going to change now or in the next ten months.

Don't look for the "freeze" to be renewed next year.

Obama is "playin' the dozens" with Bibi, Chicago gangster style.

Bibi hasn't been true to any promise he's made, and he won't be true to this one either.
