Construction resumes in Samaria

I've been out for the last several hours - we took the four youngest kids to visit our married son, daughter-in-law and yummy granddaughter. Bli ayin hara.

Bulldozers swung into action on Monday in Ariel and Tapuach, both in Samaria, as the 'settlement freeze' came to an end on Sunday night. In Ariel, the construction was particularly poignant. Meanwhile, in the Etzion bloc in Judea, officials said construction would be moving along more slowly due to the Succoth holiday, which ends on Thursday night. This is from the Ariel link.
Bulldozers began operating Monday morning in the West Bank settlement of Ariel as the ten month settlement freeze came to an end.

Residents of the town woke up to hear construction work beginning on over 50 new housing units set to be built in the south east of the settlement.

The new neighborhood will house families that were evacuated from the Gaza Strip during the 2005 disengagement.
The 50 units are being built for Jews expelled from the town of Netzarim in the Gaza Strip in 2005. You all may recall that when he first became Prime Minister, Ariel Sharon said that Jews' right to Netzarim is equivalent to their right to Tel Aviv. That was before he had to convince himself otherwise to stay out of jail.

And this is a threat to peace, how exactly?

How do 50 more housing units lead the Palestinians to walk out of the talks?

Only if they're not interested in peace with Israel.
