Top Palestinian official: (Erekat) Settlements and two-state solution 'mutually exclusive'
Chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat says talks can continue if construction in West Bank and East Jerusalem ends, after meeting representatives of the quartet of Middle East mediators.

There can be no two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict as long as Israel continues building in the West Bank and East Jerusalem, chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat said Monday.

He spoke as international envoys held another round of separate talks with Palestinians and Israelis in Jerusalem, in a bid to revive stalled peace negotiations.

---

The Palestinians would not abandon their demand for a freeze of all Israeli construction in the West Bank, including even what they call Jewish neighborhoods of Jerusalem," a senior Palestinian official said.

1. Palestinians Talks
He is correct.but i am afraid the fact is as long as the USA remains the broker in the mid east process,nothing will change,the outlook is bleak,unless the US is removed as the middle man because thwe Palaestinians have been really negotiating with a two against one propostition,a lose lose situtation

2. Oh trust me, one thing it will not do is stay the same as it is now.
As with global warming, it is much too late to stabilize the status quo (IMHO). All this clinging to the past just makes the future worse.

Where we are going I do not pretend to know, but I don't expect things to get better any time soon..
