Bad foundations

By Seth Freedman
The Guardian

"Peace Now's latest report into settlement activity gives the lie to the Israeli government's Annapolis promises to freeze all settlement construction - and the facts speak for themselves. Their report highlights over 100 instances of building on settlements taking place since December, prompting the group to declare the settlement freeze as "dead".

Critics of the Palestinians love to paint those on the other side of the security wall as untrustworthy and impossible to make peace with, yet it is a case of the pot calling the kettle black. The Israeli government signs interim deals with one hand while frantically digging foundations for more settlement homes with the other, and Peace Now's expose drives yet another nail into the Annapolis coffin."
