Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat said Monday that Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's statement to the cabinet that he would remove all unauthorized West Bank outposts, falls far short of Israel's commitments. He noted that a string of Israeli leaders have maintained that Israel should be allowed to build in existing settlements to account for "natural growth."

"Either it's a 100 percent settlement freeze or no settlement freeze. There is nothing in the middle."
