ABSTRACT
The article discusses the conclusion made by U.S. President Barack Obama and his advisers which says that peace in Israel will require an end to construction of settlements on occupied Palestinian land. Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu refuses to freeze the growth of Jewish settlements and demands that the Palestinians should not just recognize Israel as a country but as a specifically Jewish state. It presents remarks of Rabbi Eric Yoffie on Obama's demands for a settlement freeze.
