The National Security Cabinet met Wednesday to discuss the Palestinians' refusal to renew negotiations despite the series of gestures made by Israel in recent months.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said during the cabinet discussion, "It seems as though the Palestinians have adopted a strategy of rejecting negotiations with Israel in order to avoid grappling with demands made by Israel and the international community that necessitate concessions be made. However, this is a mistake. There will be no true resolution without direct negotiations with Israel." (Roni Sofer)
