What peace talks? What peace process? What competant and honest Palestinian Authority?
The U.S. envoy to the Middle East, George Mitchell, was expected to arrive in Israel on Wednesday in order to continue efforts to restart peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians. Jerusalem sources believe that the resumption of talks will be announced soon, possibly immediately following Mitchell’s visit.
Jerusalem officials stressed that “U.S. assistance in curbing the effects of the Goldstone report will produce significant pressure on Israel by the Obama administration to move forward with the diplomatic process.”
