    JERUSALEM — Senior Israeli officials expressed irritation on Wednesday that President Obama had declined to acknowledge what they called clear understandings with the Bush administration that allowed Israel to build West Bank settlement housing within certain guidelines while still publicly claiming to honor a settlement “freeze.”

    Who cares what Bush says?
    Bush was one of the biggest tools ever for Israel and AIPAC.
    Bush was such a tool he invaded Iraq because of PNAC.

    Settlements are a huge deal, seems that the situation, and each sides understanding of if they could, could't or shouldn't build them was cloudy....

    It's actually pretty straightforward.

    The settlements are illegal, and their existence helps lose any moral high ground on the part of Israel.

    Any claims that Bush allowed them, are just more bone-headed decisions from the worst President in history, and should be reversed just like his genius torture bases.
