Israel to Obama: You're Not the Boss of Me

Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak is on his way to Washington today to continue the "dialogue" between PM Netanyahu and President Obama on settlements. I think Israel is sending a message too:

Israel said Monday it authorized the construction of 50 new residential units in a West Bank settlement, defying rising pressure from the U.S. and the international community for a building freeze in territory claimed by the Palestinians as part of a future state.

The expansion of Adam, a settlement near Jerusalem surrounded by three Palestinian villages, is part of a defense ministry plan to relocate 300 residents of the unauthorized hilltop outpost of Migron.

In a speech earlier this month, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that while Israel will not establish new settlements, construction in existing settlements should be permitted to allow for demographic expansion.

Obama has laid down a hard line on this, saying that Israel must not establish any new settlements or expand the existing ones. Someone has to blink.
