Noted. Seems to me that he's willing to give up a bit to garner international support for continued aggression against Iran. It also now seems clear to me that many of these people in power just have their brains stuck on warmongering......I say it's way past time for some serious peacemongering, but I guess that isn't financially beneficial to The Powers That Be. War always generates more money for the wealthiest. When will people finally "get it?"

Leave it to the BBC to distort the story.

"The Palestinians had said they would appeal to the UN, warning that Israel's move would kill off peace talks."

The Palestinians have absolutely NO intention of making peace with Israel. The talks are a sham from the Palestinian side. The Palestinians would incur the wrath of the entire Arab and Muslim world if they dared to make peace with the Israelis. Their plan for Israel is death by a thousand cuts.

I bet that the true story is "Obama Orders Israeli PM To Rethink on Settlement Construction Plans".

No Israeli politician in a sound mind would gave Palestinian Arabs another gift, right after two racist murders of two Israelis by several Arab terrorists.

I wanted a petition which said Please Thank Israeli Prime Minister for Rethinking this, and urging him not to!

Allan, Obama holds keys for parts to Israeli aircrafts and other things on which Israel relies on US.

Nothing to be surprised about after Obama sent Netaniyahu home right before dinner.

And let's not forget CAIR, ISNA, MPAC and others of Sunni Lobby, working hard, being active and powerful in the White House. They managed to alter military training, arrange for a mosque on Ground Zero to mark their victory in 9/11, close police programs watching extremists and teach their constituents not to talk to FBI.

What does it take them to squeeze Netaniuahu, when Obama doesn't like him anyway?

Netanyahu "cancels" plans - for now...

Jessica, there are already 22 Arab states, which all failed to provide democracy and prosperity to its citizen.

The new Arab state will be extremist, militant and anti-Western. Its creation is NOT In the interest of the civilized world.
