This time the article has been published by Público, under the title Las negociaciones indirectas de paz en Palestina chocan con Netanyahu (Indirect peace negotiations in Palestine are at odds with Netanyahu) and the subtitle "Israeli Prime Minister criticizes the process started this Sunday, which counts on American mediation". Content of the article below (translated as accurate as possible, between quotation marks):
"Attempts for achieving peace between Israel and Palestine through the indirect conversations initiated this Sunday are at odds with Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's words, who has maintained that it's not possible to achieve an accord 'from a distance'.
Precisely on the same day on which Palestinian chief negotiator, Saeb Erekat, announced in Ramallah the beginning of the indirect negotiations with Israel under American mediation, Netanyahu has shown himself critical with the process to demand the establishment of 'direct' negotiations 'as soon as possible' and not through 'remote control'. 'We'll not achieve accords or take decisions about critical issues if we don't sit down together in the same room', Netanyahu has declared.
This is not the first stone which Israeli Prime Minister puts on the way of these new negotiations, the first ones after 18 months, having declared on other occasion that the conversations should be initiated 'without previous conditions', referring to the Palestinian condition of stopping East Jerusalem's Jewish settlements.
White House's envoy to the Middle East, George Mitchell, is participating in the indirect conversations, and he has maintained a meeting last Sunday with the President of the Palestinian National Authority (P.N.A.), Mahmoud Abbas, who leads the Palestinian negotiating team. The objective of these meetings is to deal with all the issues related to the definitive peace statute."
So, according to Público, Netanyahu should be blamed for a new hindrance in the recently re-started peace process, just because he wants to talk face to face with Mahmoud Abbas. Shouldn't Abbas himself be blamed for trying to avoid direct peace conversations with Netanyahu? Who is more likely to want peace, someone who wants to talk directly about a peace accord or someone who doesn't want to do so?
