Obama to relax pressure on settlement freeze

An article in Haaretz today announced a potential shift in the American position regarding a settlement freeze. The Obama administration is working on an “American Plan”, essentialy a framework for negotiations which have been dead-locked for the past 6 months. Notably, after massive amounts of pressure for a complete settlement freeze, the US is interested in reaching a compromise with Israel on the settlement issue as a precondition for the plan’s presentation. US Middle East Envoy, George Mitchell, is working on a formula compelling Israel to go ‘as far as it can’ on the settlement issue.
