Kerry Tells Netanyahu: Israel's Settlement Activity Violates Terms Of Peace Talks

Source: HAARETZ

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, trying to keep his Middle East peace initiative on track in the face of fresh controversy over Israeli settlements, said he had "frank and open" talks on the matter with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday.

In a telephone conversation with Netanyahu and Justice Minister Tzipi Livni, who is leading the Israeli negotiating team vis-a-vis the Palestinians, Kerry expressed U.S. concern over recent announcements of land being marketed for new settlement construction in the West Bank and Jerusalem.

Senior Israeli and American officials said that Kerry told the Israeli premier that some of the tenders being published contravened agreements between the sides to curb construction over the course of the nine-month negotiations period.

Kerry, who planned to speak later in the day with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, also said Tuesday he believed the Palestinian leader "is committed to continue" peace talks with Israel.

2. Israel doesn't want peace - at least the people in charge of the government don't.

There will never be peace when Netanyahoo (mispelling intentional) is in charge.

10. peace

 

the whole Middle-East will NEVER have peace , they just love to fight with each other , wether its religious or politick factions . Therefore , its a pipe dream to think we can import democracy there . All they understand is a strong dictator who tells them when to breathe in and breathe out .
