    I guess not...

    (and if it takes you awhile, Beitar Illit is in the West Bank)
    The construction in Beitar Illit received a permit long ago, under the Olmert government.

    I don't care when it "received" its permit. If your country tells me they are going to agree to a 10 month settlement freeze in the West Bank, I expect them to abide by it... at least for longer than 3 months. I'm glad the Palestinians have boycotted the talks. Why should they have to negotiate when the borders of their future state are getting smaller and smaller?

    The freezing means that no new constructions would be approved.
    This construction has received its approval long ago, during Olmert's time.

    I'm disappointed to hear this.
    Peace in my eyes is a superior cause, and I agree with my country stance to negotiate even when my country's civilians are being bombed by Palestinian rockets.

    A settlement freeze means no construction. Or does the word 'freeze' only apply to certain items? Kind of like how the word militant applies to policemen and legislators to Israel.

    Peace is always a superior cause. Aggression, like building in occupied territory, is not a path to peace. Neither is blockading an entire strip of land because a certain political party wins an election.

    It was more than understandable from Netanyahu's declaration that settlements that are ongoing will be finished, and no new buildings will be approved.

    Or because a certain political party marks its stance to kill innocent human beings based on their nationalities, showing their kids their favorite shows on TV like how to kill a Jew or what it means to be a martyr.

    New Housing Approved in Beitar Illit - Politics & Gov't - Israel News - Israel National News
    Despite the construction freeze, Defense Minister Ehud Barak has given approval for the construction of 112 apartments in Beitar Illit.
    The approval for this construction didn't even happen during Olmert's term. The approval happened less than a week before that article was posted.

    You've obviously missed a big passage here:
    The construction in Beitar Illit received a permit long ago, under the Olmert government, but foundations have not been laid, due to “infrastructure problems and safety issues.” For this reason, Barak granted the project an exemption from the freeze.
