Kerry Appeals to Abbas to Extend Peace Talks


kerrySecretary of State John Kerry and PA President Mahmoud Abbas met Wednesday in Amman in a bid to continue the stalled peace negotiations with Israel.

According to American diplomats in Jordan, Kerry has secured assurances from Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu that Israel will release 26 Palestinian prisoners as previously scheduled if Abbas agrees to extend the time limit for the talks.

After Abbas addressed the Arab League summit in Kuwait on Tuesday, a senior Israeli official accused Abbas of parading “rejectionism as a virtue.” “By reiterating his adversarial maximalist position, Abbas is undermining President Obama’s vision of peace and torpedoing Secretary Kerry’s efforts to move the process forward.”

  1. When you live in a world where the wicked will not even sit up to listen to the music because they have their own harp in their own lair and it plays only the music of hate, then you realize that you have no obligation to offer your own distinction to the song of a limited varied speech of lost depth. That means that if the arabs will not recognize Israel as a Jewish State, Israel should not have to recognize any arab nation as a social society. And that translates to the fact that no arab nation has any right to exist and western democracy has every priority to democratize and reform and replace all arab nations. So much for me? No, so much for you. Goodbye arabia and persia. You are not our future.
