Finding hope in Amman – part 1
I want to believe that today, November 30 2011, will be the resurrection of the Israeli-Palestinian peace talks.
In the Jordanian capital of Amman, the head of opposition in Israel, Tzipi Livni, met with the Palestinian President, Mahmoud Abbas, and called on the Palestinian Authority to return to peace talks with Israel saying that “we must work together now to fend off the extremist Islamic forces”. Abbas replied that he considered peace and negotiations to be the only ways to reach a two-state solution, based on the 1967 borders, and to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
We will have to wait and see what tomorrow brings but I wish for the next step to be a return to the negotiation table.
