The last few months have been very hard on the Israeli government, having to deal with pressure from the US who were trying to extract a promise from Israel to stop all building projects in the West Bank, to help towards renewing negotiations with the PA. Eventually Israel came to an agreement to freeze any building projects for the next 10 months. Meaning, any building projects that are currently in process will continue till the end but no new projects will start, not even those which have been given the green light to start many months before. Now here's the catch. Who are the ones who are employed in the building business? Palestinians! When the Palestinian workers heard that there will be a stand still in building work, they really got annoyed/frustrated, knowing that this situation will bring them to lack of income once the current projects end. I'm not even going to go into all the problems it will cause on the Israeli side, since that's not the point of this thread. My question is simple, if freezing building projects harms the Palestinians' livelihood how is this going to help them with the negotiations? The next 10 months are going to bring the Palestinian people down because many of them will have no income and they will once again blame Israel for not providing for the Palestinians, when in actual fact, if it weren't for Obama and his policies we wouldn't be in a situation where Israel will be blamed for not caring for the Palestinians whose livelihood has been taken away from Obama's own request! I predict, that the frozen building projects is what is going to cause another uproar from the Palestinian people (not talking about their government) might even lead to a 3rd intifada all because Israel did what the Obama government pressured Israel to do to help with negotiating with the PA. Thoughts?
