JERUSALEM (AP) - Israel is considering a package of security and diplomatic incentives the U.S. has proposed in hopes of reviving Mideast peace talks.
The proposals were hashed out last week during a New York meeting between Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
The plan calls for a 90-day moratorium on the construction of Israeli settlements in the West Bank. That could give both sides time to work out an agreement on the future borders of Israel and a Palestinian state, making it clear where Israel can continue to build and where it cannot.
Israel would get access to top-end warplanes and U.S. diplomatic protection at the United Nations.
Netanyahu hasn't explicitly endorsed the plan, but one Cabinet minister from his Likud Party says it's clear the prime minister backs it.
Netanyahu told his Cabinet today that details were still being finalized, and when the proposal is complete he will bring it before an inner Cabinet of decision-makers.
