Its sad news today. Netanyahu, Israeli PM, has said the settlements in the Westbank are to be allowed to expand, to accomodate "natural growth", his words.

This is not only a clear slap in the face for Fatah, who control the Westbank, but more suprisingly, Barak Obama, who dicussed the issue with Netanyahu only a few days ago.
The new Whitehouse has already given their support to the Westbank government and promised to play their part in getting the road map back on track. But Netanyahu it seems is determined not to engage in the roadmap or any workable peace process.
How is the US administration to repsond to this? Especially if US citizens and soldiers are put in harms way due to Netanyahus self serving political agenda?
