Hundreds of new housing units, which will be added to 2,500 such units already in construction, will undermine the credibility of his government in the eyes of the international community, but will not satisfy the settlers’ appetite.

Further construction will not establish facts that will bolster Israel’s position in future negotiations on permanent boundaries, and will not strengthen Netanyahu’s public image and political standing. It will only disrupt efforts to achieve the key goal he has set – establishing a demilitarized Palestinian state next to Israel – and may make the prime minister appear to be a weak leader, susceptible to pressure and duplicitous.
