Abbas: Only Israeli Construction Freeze, More Released Prisoners Can Extend Talks (Fries With That Too?)


abbas-prisonersMeretz Party Chairwoman Zehava Gal-On met with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah on Monday to discuss the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian conflict negotiations.

Abbas threatened to halt negotiations if the U.S.-drafted framework agreement, expected to be revealed this month, does not satisfy the Palestinian demands. “If the framework agreement does not provide solutions to the core issues, I will not extend negotiations. I will lay my keys on the table and turn to international organizations,” Abbas said, Israel Hayom reported.

“The only chance we have to extend talks is if Netanyahu declares a settlement construction freeze and another wave of Palestinian prisoners is released, this time with women, children and administrative prisoners,” he said.

  1. Abbas knows he has nothing to fear. No matter what happens, Obama has made it clear that the Israelis will be blamed, not him.
