Abbas aide urges world shun Netanyahu over speech
World powers should isolate Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu after he unveiled tough terms for a Middle East peace accord, an aide to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said on Monday.


Palestinians were dismayed by his demand they first recognise Israel as a Jewish state and his failure to heed a call they and US President Barack Obama have voiced to halt Jewish settlement construction in the occupied West Bank. "The international community should confront this policy, through which Netanyahu wants to kill off any chance for peace," Abbas adviser Yasser Abed Rabbo told Reuters. (Reuters)
