Israel was willing to extend the settlement freeze for another three months but decided not to "because the US said that what would happen is that we'd end up spending a lot of political capital, and on the 91st day, they [the Palestinians] would ask for more," Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said on Tuesday during a speech to foreign journalists.

Netanyahu reiterated that "no coalition will prevent me from pursuing a peace that I believe in. If I move forward with a peace agreement, it means I believe in it, and I can get the support of the Israeli public."
