'Palestinians' ultimatum: Cancel housing tenders or talks are off

I expected this to happen, but I thought the 'Palestinians' would at least wait until they get 24 terrorists back on Tuesday. The 'Palestinians' have delivered an ultimatum to the United States: Either Israel cancels the tenders for 1,187 new Jewish homes (mostly in Jerusalem) that were announced on Sunday or the talks are off.
The Palestinian Authority (PA) is demanding that Israel cancel its decision to market about 1,200 new housing units in Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria, even before the next round of “peace talks” scheduled for Wednesday.
Voice of Israel public radio quoted an anonymous senior PA official as saying the PA leadership has informed the United States of this decision and is awaiting a response. The official said that if this is the way Israel wants to reach peace, then there is no need for negotiations and “let Netanyahu make peace with [Bayit Yehudi head Naftali] Bennett.”
Voice of Israel notes that the announcement regarding the tenders was made just as PA head Mahmoud Abbas was meeting U.S. Mediator Martin Indyk in Ramallah.
Voice of Israel also said that PA negotiator Saeb Erekat said that Israel does not want the PA to come to the negotiating table, and that it may succeed in achieving this. Erekat was speaking to Al Arabiya, in response to the announcement of new tenders by Israel.
Let them cancel the talks. But at least let them do it before we release 24 murderers.
