Is this a wise move?

TEL AVIV -- Israel faced sharp criticism Monday from several European governments over its decision to expand settlement building in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem following U.N. de facto recognition of Palestinian statehood.

In London, the British government summoned the Israeli ambassador to express disapproval of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's decision.

"We deplore the recent Israeli government decision to build 3,000 new housing units and unfreeze development in the E1 block (of East Jerusalem). This threatens the viability of the two-state solution," Britain's Foreign and Commonwealth Office said in a statement.

Consider it like the opening of a bargaining position.

I dont agree with it but I can certainly understand why they did it.

After an announcement like that is made, there are still a few months needed to do the planning - no different than here or anywhere else. That will buy the time for negotiation.

Like Obama playing hardball on the budget. He tried Mr. Nice guy last time and we know where it got him.

I wonder if Huggybear eloped with his donkey??

The only problem, of course, is that I doubt this will bring the Palestinians into negotiation. It is clear that they are trying to use worldwide sympathy to pressure Israel into declaring the state, instead of negotiating bilaterally.

Huggy has been quiet. I hope he uses protection.

HughBe--- My donkey is always attached to me, if you know what I mean. On the other hand, you have to mount your ass, if you know what I mean.

Are you saying that because I cannot identify my maker that YOUR explanation of all this is the correct one?
That makes no sense whatsoever.
What evidence (not even proof)do you have that the "god" you worship is the correct one? Or even that he exists or ever did?
You have nothing. Just some old words that could have been inspired by anyone.
At least your donkey friend is real.
Former---Are you saying that because I cannot identify my maker that YOUR explanation of all this is the correct one?

HughBe--- No, I am not saying that. These are the things that I am saying. You cannot IDENTIFY your Maker because you are blind. My explanation is correct because I can SEE the evidence of YOUR Maker.

Former--That makes no sense whatsoever.

HughBe--- My answer above has corrected this state of yours.

Former---What evidence (not even proof)do you have that the "god" you worship is the correct one? Or even that he exists or ever did?

HughBe-- I have the fulfilment of prophecies.

Former---At least your donkey friend is real.

HughBe--- I accept your comment IF you are speaking about yourself or Frijoles. However if it is YOUR other donkey that you have been talking about then I thank you for the confirmation that you have no idea of what is reality and what is make-believe.

He's baaack.

Nations only seem to be interested in international consensus when it suits them.

Robert McNamara in the "Fog of War" documentary said when other nations with similar values do not support you, you might want to re-examine your policy.

He said this of course in connection with Vietnam and how no other ally supported or involvement.

It was you who called me "big boy."
A term of endearment among gay Jamaicans?
"big boy" = physically mature but mentally immature.

Unless I took leave of my senses I could never call you "big boy" given that I consider PENCILS,the group that your tool falls into,as small.

Ans.
You know very well that WE are also the aggrieved party, so we have every right to look at the terms of the covenant and verify if the parties have met their parts of the covenant.
If the issue did not involve us, then we would have cared least about the covenant and its terms.
And you know very well what issue we are talking about and which is the land under contention.
MUQ---You know very well that WE are also the aggrieved party, so we have every right to look at the terms of the covenant and verify if the parties have met their parts of the covenant

HughBe--- I know no such thing. This is what I know, your group is NOT a party to the land covenant. So a review of the covenant must be done by you and yours for academic purposes ONLY.

MUQ---If the issue did not involve us, then we would have cared least about the covenant and its terms.

HughBe--- The issue of the covenant DOES NOT involve your group.

MUQ---And you know very well what issue we are talking about and which is the land under contention.

HughBe--- I know what you have in mind. I also know that like one of the parties to the covenant the issues are being mixed up. The religious ones on the other side don't have a full grasp of the covenants and issues are mixed up very much like what your side is doing.

1. Indeed the size of my HEAD tells me that there is a loving God.

2. Take a walk and look at the world around you and look into the sky.

3. World empires as was prophesied by Daniel.

4. A witness

5. Not chicken but "the sacrifices of righteousness"
