Palestinians Demand Confidence-Building Steps from Israel and U.S.

(Israel Hayom) Daniel Siryoti - A senior Palestinian official who works under PA President Mahmoud Abbas told Israel Hayom: "To renew the peace process and for us to return to the negotiating table, confidence-building steps will be required, both from Israel and from the administration in Washington. We have made this clear in the past, and we are once again emphasizing that we are willing to renew the negotiations without any preconditions. But the U.S. will have to guarantee that it will be a fair broker. Washington is marching to Israel's drum." Another top Palestinian official said: "If it were up to me, I would inform the Washington delegation not to bother coming to Ramallah. The peace process is long dead and attempts to revive it are useless. We will continue the diplomatic intifada, we will isolate Israel diplomatically, and use every method that international law allows against it."
