SIRTE, Libya:WHAT WILL ONE EXTRA MONTH DO!?
The United States pledged to keep working to rescue Middle East peace talks after Arab ministers gave it one month from Friday to secure a change of heart from Israel over Jewish settlement building.
The ministers, meeting in Sirte, Libya, made it clear that the direct talks with the Palestinians relaunched just last month would collapse if Israel did not halt settlement expansion in the occupied West Bank.
The Arab League Follow-up Committee said it would meet “in a month to review the alternatives proposed by [Palestinian President Mahmud] Abbas to determine the necessary steps to be taken on this.”
The committee, which groups 13 foreign ministers, urged Washington to pursue efforts in the meantime to stop Israeli settlement activity.
It added that it “supports the position of the Palestinian president calling for a total cessation of settlement to allow the resumption of direct negotiations.”
The Palestinian leader’s spokesman, Nabil Abu Rudeina, said the statement “offers huge support for the position of President Abbas.
“The committee will convene again in a month to study the alternatives.
GIVE OBAMA COVER:
Obama wouldn't dare twist Israel's arm, before the election, But after the election - and before the new Congress is sworn in - he will: Obama will side with the EU and the Arabs and against Israel and demand that Israel stop ALL construction or face sanctions.
His mentors Ayers and Wright and his longtime personal pal Rashid Khalidi and his ol' neighbor Louis Farrakhan will also be happy: IOW: ALL Jews should've expected this.
