“it would be “a one-time affair, and it is temporary.”
This was the promise of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on 25th of November 2009. The freeze of construction in Jewish settlements was going to last for 10 months only. The freeze shall therefore end 25th of September 2010.
This is what the Prime Minister of Israel said yesterday, quoted in Jerusalem Post.
“The prime minister stated his willingness to discuss the end of the government’s building freeze in Judea and Samaria, set to end in September, with Palestinian Authority (PA) chairman Mahmoud Abbas. He went as far as to say that he would go to Ramallah to negotiate with Abbas if the PA chairman would come to Jerusalem”.

Netanyahu has to be honored for his willingness to travel to Ramallah. But this is not the issue. The issue is that a non corrupt National leader with a character do stand with his people, and keep his words and promises.
A hypocrite will say He has changed his mind. And in his heart, he will say: “Its me or chaos”.
