Time to extend the settlement freeze


President Obama will meet with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu at the White House on Tuesday. This meeting is an opportunity for Obama to push Netanyahu to act for peace by stopping construction in West Bank settlements.

Israel announced a moratorium on new settlement construction last year, but that freeze has yet to result in a discernible slowdown in construction. And the settlement freeze is set to expire in three months. If it is not extended, peace talks may collapse.
