Just as Israeli president was exchanging pleasantries with the US officials, he was hit by two news: Jerusalem municipality advanced a plan to build 942 apartment in Gilo, Jerusalem, and Ehud Barak reportedly promised to allow construction in a number of settlements.

The parties appeared to have an interest in disrupting Peres’ talks with Obama by carefully scheduling those provocative moves.

One explanation is that they try to stave off Obama’s rapprochement with Netanyahu which Peres reportedly tries to mediate, or upset some other mission of Peres’.
