Israeli ministers: No West Bank settlement freeze

The line in the sand is being etched into concrete, and Israeli officials are whining about unfair concessions to the Palestinians - and are seemingly aghast that the "understandings" made with the Bush administration (specifically, about "established realities" regarding West Bank settlement construction) are no longer in force.

Oh, come on! If they want to play that card . . . what about earlier understandings with Israel about a two-state solution - about the need for a Palestinian state - that go back as far as Yitzhak Rabin and the Oslo Accords, and most recently, Ehud Olmert, the Annapolis meetings, etc.? Now Netanyahu/Lieberman reject any such understanding, but they cry foul over West Bank settlement construction? Something long recognized as illegal by both international law and UN resolutions?

Stick to your guns, President Obama,
