Israel accuses Palestinians of incitement over talks

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has blamed the Palestinians for the apparent stalemate in their peace talks, accusing them of creating "artificial crises" and incitement.

He spoke after talks with US Secretary of State John Kerry, who is attempting to revive the peace process.

The direct negotiations launched in July have shown little sign of progress and are due to end next April.

Mr Kerry will later meet Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.

The secretary of state has denied media speculation that he may propose a new interim peace deal. Kerry confident

Mr Netanyahu said Israel stood by the terms agreed for the talks.

"I'm concerned about their progress because I see the Palestinians continuing with incitement, continuing to create artificial crises, continuing to avoid, run away from the historic decisions that are needed to make a genuine peace," he said.

On Tuesday, some Israeli media reported that Israeli negotiators had told their Palestinian counterparts that the barrier built by Israel in and around the occupied West Bank should serve as the border of a future Palestinian state.

And on Sunday, the Maariv newspaper carried a report saying Israel would build a security fence in the Jordan Valley, along the border with Jordan - a claim denounced by the Palestinians.

Mr Abbas also told a meeting of his Fatah movement that the negotiations with Israel had not made any progress so far, according to the Maan news agency.

For his part, Mr Kerry told the Israeli prime minister that, despite such reports, he was confident a deal could be reached.

"We are now three months into this negotiation. There are always difficulties, always tensions. I'm very confident of our ability to work through them. That's why I'm here," he said.

"Mr Kerry is pursuing an agreement based on a "two-state solution" that envisages Israel and a Palestinian state - consisting of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip - existing alongside each other."

Get the money right Kerry, you'll git-r-done.

Sorry, Israel, it really doesn’t matter what you say; thanks in large part to Obama, anti-Semitism is back in fashion, and Israel is now the World’s Number One Bad Guy.

Ho-hum...PLO never made the REAL conversion from PLO to PA (Palestinian Authority).

PLO never negotiates in good faith. All they want is:

ALL murderers released from Israeli jails

The “right of return” (influx of millions of Palestinians into Israel, thus destroying Israel)

Israel to return all “occupied” lands starting from 1917 or before.

Jews to leave Israel and give everything they've so hard at establishing to the PLO.

We saw what happened when Israel left the Gaza strip with greenhouses intact. The Arabs destroyed everything the Israelis built so now they do nothing all day except have goat sex, smoke their hookahs, pick their noses, dig terror tunnels and make rockets.

If the PLO REALLY wanted peace, they could have obtained it in 1993 but they chose the wrong path, again and again.
