JERUSALEM (AP) — Israel's prime minister has rejected U.S. calls to halt construction in disputed east Jerusalem, clouding a new peace mission by Washington's Mideast envoy.

Benjamin Netanyahu's made the comments to Channel 2 TV, shortly after the arrival of envoy George Mitchell on Thursday.

Netanyahu declared: "There will be no freeze in Jerusalem."

Netanyahu was repeating a long-standing position, but the timing of the statement threatened to undermine Mitchell's latest efforts to restart peace talks.

This is pretty interesting in light of everything happening in the MidEast today. What impact do you think this will have on the current Mid-East situation?

Let's try to keep the discussion about the situation, and not take pot shots at either Israel or Palestine.

I think it is becoming more obvious everyday that Israel does not want peace. They do not want to have to compromise anything. If peace happens at all it will be on their terms, and only their terms. This statement is showing the US that even the US cannot dictate to Israel.

STRATOR doesn't believe that Syria gave Hizbullah Scuds... they don't believe Israel... I would rather trust STRATFOR than Israel.

Anyway, what about the US rejects calls to protect Israel from UN resolutions? Or rejects calls to give them financial and military aid?

But of course Obama will never do that since his bosses love their little forward base in the middle-east.

I've said countless times....

Israel TELLS the US what is going to happen.

"Thank You Sir , May I have another. "

That’s funny considering that Israel has made a lot of concessions and the Arabs have made very little.

I mean they did give back a lot of the Land they won from Egypt and have given back land to Lebanon and Syria... Even have given back land to the Palestinians. How much more do they have to give back?
