Netanyahu: "How Many Times Do I Have to Invite Abbas for Talks"

(Jerusalem Post) Herb Keinon - Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who was asked on Monday why he doesn't initiate something with President Mahmoud Abbas on the Palestinian track, said: "How many times do I have to invite him for talks? There is a certain conception toward Israel that blames it for everything no matter what." It is "impossible to start [negotiations] because Abbas talks about a willingness, but then runs away from them. Therefore, talk now of an initiative sounds rather hollow." Netanyahu also came out strongly against a Gaza seaport, saying the port in Ashdod is capable of dealing with goods entering Gaza. "I will not enable the opening of a maritime artery to Gaza that will enable the smuggling of weapons for terrorism," he said.
