Freeze tag

The United States envoy to the Middle East, George Mitchell, reiterated on Tuesday that the Obama administration is adamantly insisting on a freeze of construction in all Israeli settlements in the West Bank.

Mitchell said that opposition to Israel's settlement policy has been Washington's position for the last 40 years, and that the administration had no intention of backing down on the demand for a total freeze.
Or else, what? You're it?

For the last 40 years Israel has been creating and expanding settlements. The US response has been to give away more, always more money. Mitchell's 'adamantly insisting' must be code words for 'bending over and getting reamed'.
