Palestinian Leader Says Time ‘Not Ripe’ for Mideast Peace Talks
Oct. 20 (Bloomberg) -- Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad said there is little chance for a prompt renewal of peace negotiations between Palestinians and Israelis that the Obama administration seeks.

“My own assessment” is that “conditions are not ripe at this juncture for a meaningful resumption of talks,” Fayyad told a Washington audience yesterday.

He made his remarks as the U.S. and its allies in the so- called Quartet -- the United Nations, the European Union and Russia -- are trying to restart talks between the two sides to head off a Palestinian push for statehood recognition at the UN.

Israel earlier this month accepted the Quartet initiative. Netanyahu said Oct. 2 that “Israel has some concerns” and called on the Palestinian Authority to “enter into direct negotiations without delay.”

Another example of arabs moving the goal post. With every Israeli concession, the arabs demand more before they take any action.

4. Wonderful......words
"Al Jazeera will release the documents between January 23-26th, 2011. They will reveal new details about:

•the Palestinian Authority’s willingness to concede illegal Israeli settlements in East Jerusalem, and to be “creative” about the status of the Haram al-Sharif/Temple Mount;
•the compromises the Palestinian Authority was prepared to make on refugees and the right of return;
•details of the PA’s security cooperation with Israel;
•and private exchanges between Palestinian and American negotiators in late 2009, when the Goldstone Report was being discussed at the United Nations."


Nice words....no action.

SO AGAIN WHAT CONCESSIONS HAVE THEY DONE?

i KNOW.....They changed the palestinian constitution that "accepts" the idea of israel. AND YET .....no one has seen it.

7. The palestinian leadership hasn't.
While OTT , hysterical soundbytes like the above make for good domestic consumption in the US, those with even a basic knowledge of the conflict are aware that the PLO recognizes the right of Israel to exist and support a two-state solution. As for the Arabs, not sure if yr referring to surrounding Arab states or just to Palestinians. Either way yr incorrect. Jordan and Egypt have peace treaties with Israel and others have offered a normalization of their relationship on the peaceful resolution of the conflict. The only folk who'd fall into what you described are Hamas and ahmanutjob. But as the Israeli government just showed in negotiating the prisoner release, they managed to negotiate with hamas

9. You're so wrong. The PA is currently cheering, justifying, & paying terrorists who murder Israeli
Edited on Mon Oct-24-11 06:17 PM by shira
...innocents. Calling them freedom fighters and paying them for a job well done is not evidence of an entity that accepts Israel's right to exist alongside a future Palestinian state in peace. No more than Hamas which does the same exact thing.

Further, here's Abbas' moderate PA erasing Israel's existence...

It's absolutely dishonest to continue claiming the PA is serious about peace and 2 states.

10. No, I'm not wrong
Read my post again and try explaining which bit is incorrect. Try focusing on what the post is about as it appears you don't appear to comprehend what it was that was being said.
