Israeli Defense Minister Criticizes US Security Plan
Palestinian News Network . Tuesday, 14 January 2014
The Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon has stated that the US Security plan presented by US Secretary of State John Kerry, “is not worth the paper it’s written on.”
He goes on to state that, “The moment we leave Judea and Samaria he [Mahmoud Abbas] is finished. In reality, there have been no negotiations between us and the Palestinians for all these months – but rather between us and the Americans. The only thing that can ‘save us’ is for John Kerry to win a Nobel Prize and leave us in peace.”
According to the Egyptian newspaper Al-Masry-al-Youm, Kerry has asked the Arab League to push the Palestinians for someconcessions so that he can push the Israelis for something similar, Ynet reports.
The question of recognizing Israel as a Jewish state is however something that the Palestinians will never do.
