Well let's see if we can predict where current events are going .....

Since the cease-fire:


* Palestine recognized as a non-member state by The United Nations

* The following day, Israel said it would start drawing up plans to build thousands of settlement homes, including the first-ever development on a crucial corridor east of Jerusalem.

* The Israeli government recently delivered another blow, saying it would withhold more than $100 million in funds it transfers to the Palestinians each month.

The U.S.'s position over the years:

"The United States does not accept the legitimacy of continued Israeli settlements. It is time for these settlements to stop."- Barack Obama, 2010

“Israel should not undertake any activity that contravenes road map obligations or prejudice final status negotiations with regard to Gaza, the West Bank and Jerusalem. Therefore, Israel must remove unauthorized outposts and stop settlement expansion.” - G.W. Bush, 2003

“The settlement enterprise and bypass roads is inconsistent with the Oslo commitment that both sides negotiate a compromise." - Bill Clinton, 1999-2000

“My position is that the foreign policy of the United States says we do not believe there should be new settlements in the West Bank or in East Jerusalem. And I will conduct that policy as if it‘s firm. And that‘s our strongly held view. George H.W. Bush, 1990

“United States will not support the use of any additional land for the purpose of settlements …” - Ronald Reagan, 1982

“Our position on the settlements is very clear. They are not legal.” - Jimmy Carter, 1980

“Substantial resettlement of the Israeli civilian population in occupied territories is illegal under the convention and cannot be considered … ” – Gerald Ford, 1976

“… has no right to make expropriation or confiscation of land” - Richard Nixon, 1969

“ … to our continuing opposition to any Israeli settlements in the occupied areas” – Lyndon Johnson, 1964
