Barak Wants Debate on Stalled Peace Talks

Defense Minister Ehud Barak insisted on convening a special meeting over stalled negotiations with the Palestinian Authority during Sunday’s cabinet meeting.

During a debate on anti-Israel incitement in the Palestinian media that took place on Sunday morning, Barak said, “the issue of incitement is very important, but it is only part of the broader picture.”

“I suggest that we convene the security cabinet and debate between us the Palestinian issue, the meaning of the stalled peace process, and ways that we can progress,” he said.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu did not directly respond to Barak, although he revealed the differences of opinion between him and between the defense minister over the Palestinian issue in his closing remarks at the end of the meeting.

“The Palestinian leadership bequeaths incitement to future generations and prevents them from moving to the discourse of peace,” he said.
