Michael Oren: Israel and the US can agree over settlement expansion

It is possible for the US and Israel to come to an agreement over continued construction of Jewish settlements in the West Bank, Ambassador Michael Oren insisted Monday afternoon. Oren told Army Radio that relations with the White House and Jerusalem were still "warm," despite recent media speculation. "I definitely foresee a situation in which we can narrow the gap between the Israeli and American positions. In my opinion, the gap is becoming smaller and smaller," he said.
