FILE - In this Nov. 1, 2009 file photo, a Palestinian worker prays as others wait for transportation after crossing from the West Bank town of Qalqilya to work in Israel, at the Israeli army's checkpoint near Kibbutz Eyal in central Israel.

But after an uproar by West Bank settler leaders, the Israeli government appears poised to cancel the move _ a decision that could upset nascent U.S. efforts to restart peace talks and take away a rare piece of relief for the residents of this overcrowded town.(AP Photo/Oded Balilty, Filw)
