I wouldn't hold my breath!!!!!!!!

WASHINGTON — New Israeli construction on land claimed by the Palestinians threatens peace efforts and undermines America's ability to help end the Arab-Israeli conflict, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton told a leading Jewish organization Monday.
In a speech to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, Clinton said that Israel's recent announcement of new housing in east Jerusalem exposed differences between the U.S. and the Jewish state that others could exploit. She defended the Obama administration's strong criticism of the move because she said it hurt attempts to launch indirect peace talks.
"We objected to this announcement because we are committed to Israel and its security, which we believe depends on a comprehensive peace," Clinton said.
"It will require all parties - including Israel - to make difficult but necessary choices," Clinton said. LinkHere
