Peace talks initiative does not include preconditions of settlement freeze or return to 1967 borders, PA Foreign Minister Riad Malki says.
The Palestinian Authority is unhappy with the Quartet’s latest initiative to launch peace talks with Israel because it is “incomplete,” PA Foreign Minister Riad Malki said on Saturday.
He pointed out that the initiative, which was launched over the weekend after PA President Mahmoud Abbas submitted to UN General-Secretary Ban Ki-moon an official request for full membership in the UN, does not call for a cessation of settlement construction an a pullout to the pre-1967 lines.
The only new thing that that the Quartet carries is a time line for discussing the issues of security and borders, Malki said.
The Quartet urged Israelis and Palestinians to return to the negotiating table based on a new time line of December 2012 by which a final status agreement would end the conflict.
The Palestinians, meanwhile, have their eyes set towards Monday, when the UN Security Council is scheduled to discuss Abbas’s application for full membership of a Palestinian state.

The Arabs lost the war, and they have also lost the peace. Still they want to treat Israel as the looser, and tell the Jewish state what to do.
Even before there can be any “peace talk”.
The truth is that there is “peace” on the ground in Israel. Simply because the losers have no power of the the free and democratic state of Israel.
What is there to talk about?
The Arabs wants a re-match. They want to delete the victory that Israel got in 1967, when they liberated the city of Jerusalem and the Biblical heartland of Israel.
By a mortal mistake, Israel listen to a kingdom in Northern Europe. The so called Oslo-accords were only a trap set up by anti-Zionists, to get Islamic terrorists back into the Mountains of Zion.
Still Israel is willing to give their enemies a new chance.
Israel have again invited the Arabs for “peace talks” without setting up pre-conditions. Israel could have set up pre-conditions, but have chosen not to do so. Simply because Israel knows that the way forward is to address security concerns by simply: Talking about them.
Israel could have set up valid pre-conditions for any talks. The Jewish state could have demanded that the Arabs accepted the 1967 military defeat, and recognized Israel’s right to exist with the post-1967 borders. These are the borders that have brought a de facto situation of peace at Israel’s borders.
No foreign military power have the guts to challenge the IDF, using traditional military forces. Islam has found away around the supreme Israeli military power, by using terrorism against civilian targets. Only cowards do target women and children, because they do not have a manhood willing to fight with equals.
What a shame the Arabs have put on their own heads.
As Christians, we should not promote revenge, neither lethal force used against our enemies. Even God is slow to anger, before he judges and finish off his enemies. So should we be, walking in the likeness of the Messiah.
