Israeli Govt Undermining Palestinian State, Peace Deal

 Israeli rights group Peace Now has issued a new report condemning the Netanyahu government for a record of dramatic settlement expansions and retroactive legalization of outposts built illegally, part of an overall policy they warn is undermining Palestinian statehood and the prospect of a Mideast peace deal.
Since abandoning the partial “freeze” on settlement construction in September 2010, the Netanyahu government has issued tenders for a record 4,469 new homes to be constructed in the West Bank, according to reports, and much of that expansions has come in isolated camps deep within the West Bank, undermining the goal of a contiguous Palestinian state.
