Skip to comments.Honest Broker? Indyk Reveals ‘Nasty’ Anti-Israel Bias (US ‘negotiator’)

Martin Indyk, the American negotiator in the peace talks between Israel and the Palestinian Authority (PA), reportedly went on a nasty rant blaming the Jewish state for the talks failure in a conversation in an upscale Washington DC bar last Thursday.
A person who overheard the conversation told Washington Free Beacon that the 30-minute-long tirade included Indyk, his wife Gahl Burt, and several members of his staff. It took place right after he spoke at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy (WINEP), where he openly blamed Israeli construction in Judea and Samaria for the failure of the talks, despite the fact that a freeze of such building was not a precondition of talks.
The tone was nasty, said the source, adding Indyk et al openly blamed Economics Minister Naftali Bennett and others for sabotaging the negotiations by issuing construction permits.

Haters hate. This indynk fellow is dishonest. Liars lie. Pathetic.
It's insane that an Israeli would dare to build a house for himself in Israel.
That's like an American from Iowa building a house for himself in Kansas. It's unconscionable.
This construction is clearly a provocation.
Not the peaceful destruction and killing that has been the generous and loving response of those poor people who have been forced to live (horror of horrors!) next to Israelis.
He was involved in some failed peace venture in the Middle East back during the Clinton administration -- the failure largely tracing to his prejudice.
A guy like this has no business playing the role of "honest broker" in a negotiation. He's...not...honest.
