ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the issue involving Israeli settlements. It mentions that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu imposed a 10-month settlement freeze in 2009 to reach a historic peace agreement that would end the conflict between the Palestinians and Israel. However , Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas refused to resume negotiations because the total freeze in Jerusalem was shorter than what U.S. President Barack Obama had promised.
