Clinton said that Israel is making "unprecedented" concessions
U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton's said that Israel is making "unprecedented" concessions on West Bank settlement construction by agreeing not to build swimming pools at every Israeli settlement there and by agreeing to stop stealing Palestinian water.

She also said a freeze in swimming pool building and water robbing had not been a condition for peace talks in the past and urged both sides to cool down and go take a dip in the pool.

During the press conference, Netanyahu said Israel was ready to start never ending talks (only talks – no action) right away and that the Palestinians could bring their objections about swimming pools to the negotiating table.

"What we should do on the path to peace is to chill out and forget about The Israeli occupation of The West Bank and Gaza," he said.

The prime minister also blasted the Palestinian demand for an Olympic size pool in Ramallah for the private use of Abbas and his cronies.

"The swimming pool is a new demand, it's a change of policy - of the Palestinian policy and it doesn't do much for peace - it doesn't work to advance negotiations," Netanyahu said. "It actually is used as a pretext... as an obstacle that prevents the establishment of a fully Israeli controlled West Bank."
