In Midst Of Mideast Chaos, Israelis And Palestinians Sit Down To Talk

In the midst of all this, it was difficult for observers in Israel and the Arab world to invest much hope or optimism in the resuscitated Israeli-Palestinian peace process.

For many Israelis, it wasn’t just the volatile regional situation that fostered a spirit of skepticism but the PA’s pre-negotiation stance as well.

In an opinion piece in Monday’s Israel Hayom newspaper, Likud MK and Deputy Transportation Minister Tzipi Hotovely, echoing the feelings of many Israelis, wrote:

“The Palestinians have offered no earnest fees ahead of these negotiations. They have not declared any willingness to recognize Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish state, which was the condition Netanyahu set in his 2009 Bar-Ilan speech. Netanyahu will not offer the Palestinians more than his predecessors, Ehud Olmert and Ehud Barak, so it is just a matter of time before these peace talks deadlock as well.”

  1. bet they all wash their hands well after that meeting. What a joke of Politics. Good laugh on the Jay Leno show and that other show.

  2. How Saeb Erekat is a chief negotiator for Palestina becouse is born in Jordan, and has the Jordan citizenship, that is a demostration that all the Palestinian they should go bag to Jordan where they are comming, they are occupying the West Bank, it belongs to Israel.
