Netanyahu: Israel could have extended settlement freeze

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."
