Israel's decision to freeze settlement construction in insignificant, according to top Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat, as current West Bank construction is not being stopped. He said Wednesday's announcement by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu was aimed more toward appeasing American pressure than truly trying to reconcile with Palestinians. "At the end of the day Netanyahu needs to make peace with us, the Palestinians, he doesn't need to make peace with Americans," Erekat told Army Radio. "If that is what he wants, that is his business. The last I know, Washington is 6,000 miles from Jerusalem, while Jericho is 67."
