Israel Blames US for Settlement Issue

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has blamed US President Barack Obama for cancelling a package of incentives in exchange for a three-month settlement freeze.

"The United States asked us to consider extending the freeze by three months and the truth is that we were prepared to do so," Netanyahu was quoted as saying by Ha'aretz on Monday.

The US agreed to give twenty F-35 warplanes to Israel and to veto any anti-Israeli resolution at the United Nations Security Council if Israel extends its partial settlement freeze for 90 days.'
