Your reporter has fallen for Palestinian propaganda in his “Israel faces difficult choice on settlement freeze.” One only has to read the opening lines of the Jerusalem Post on the same subject to realize this. http://www.jpost.com/Israel/Article.aspx?id=185736
The threats to bolt the talks are just preconditions is disguise.
There is no good reason in the world why AP should investigate if Israel should be answering to stipulations & the PA be accepted without any prior requirements.
This especially in light of the fact that Israel has provided 17 years of concessions and presents only to meet more violence and demands.
The whole plan behind this report is as unkosher as investigating Jewish guilt for the Holocaust. No amount of decent reporting in it can save this long indictment’s bias.
Again in AP reporting, Israel is accused & the Palestinians are the ones with the needs.
