This is a direct result of Netanyahu's show of weakness in promising a "building freeze" in Judea and Samaria. Every time he tries to suck up to the EU and the US, he ends up hurting Israel.
I think Netanyahu needs to get his head straight and start acting like a leader of Israel instead of an obsequious servant of Obama.

If the arabs want to live there, they can sign a loyalty agreement as citizens of Israel, surrendering allegiance to any other nation, and pledging to support and defend the nation and the people of Israel. Otherwise, they can go back to Jordan, where they came from.
Israel is a JEWISH homeland, that's why they want it so bad. Ishmael is still jealous.
