Palestinian Pre-Conditions
By Micah Halpern

Monday August 16, 2010

I've Been Thinking:

The Quartet is pressuring Israel to agree to conditions before commencing direct meetings with the Palestinians.

The Quartet, composed of the UN, the EU, Russia and the US, is charged with trying to move the Palestinians and the Israelis toward a peace deal.

Israel had thought that they successfully cornered the Palestinians by pushing for a resumption of face to face, direct talks. The Palestinians had set up a series of pre-conditions before they would come back to the table with the Israelis. The Israelis said pre conditions are unreasonable. The US and most of the world agreed. Until now.

Now the Palestinians have the Quartet as their most welcome mouthpiece, pushing Palestinian preconditions and trying to force Israel into talks.

Israel is saying no and trying to convince the US to back them once again.
