So far Netanyahu appears to be leaning towards option number 1 (see below). He clearly is not gung-ho about ending the freeze but also is being realistic that the state cannot forcibly prevent the settler demonstrations planned for today (especially considering members of his government are participating in them).
It will be interesting to see how the Israeli public responds to the settlement demonstrations. While the public is somewhat indifferent about settlements they are certainly not indifferent about a realistic chance for peace.
