Israel Starts Building Its First New Colony In 26 Years

Although Netanyahu had promised not to build new settlements, his government gave its approval yesterday for a new colony (the first in 26 years) to be built near the bank of the Jordan river.

Sounds like a slap in the face of the U.S. president, in answer to his call for a Palestinian state.

According to Yariv Oppenheimer, secretary general of the Jewish Peace Now NGO , this action from the Netanyahu Government is intended to make impossible the "two states" solution promoted by Barack Obama.

This is a new serious obstacle on the road toward a peace agreement, but it is not the only one.

The fifth round of talks between Hamas and Fatah in Cairo yesterday ended without results. For more than a year, Egypt has pressed the two sides to reach an agreement to allow the formation of a unity government.

But the election timetable, the composition of the security forces and, above all, the required formal recognition of Israel by Hamas impede consensus. And without a Palestinian unity government, it is highly unprobable that Israel will accept to begin any kind of negociations.
