New Peace Talks are Welcomed by Israel
After Israel welcomed the decision for peace talks with the Palestinians, things are finally getting back on track now. Mark Regev, (Israel Government spokesman) said that the only way of solving out problems is to sit down around a table and discuss things in a healthy environment. This would be far better than hurling stones, screaming obscenities and firing bullets at different protestors.
The issues rose when the Israeli occupation forces announced a housing project in East Jerusalem, to which Palestinians got all flared up and said that it was an illegal move on behalf of Israel because they’re constructing buildings on Palestinian land.
Palestinian legislator, Hanan Ashrawi says that Israel will have to abandon its construction project for Jerusalem and anywhere around Jerusalem. Only then, we can sit down and talk about things in a mutual manner. (But that’s not going to happen Ashrawi, we already know that so it is more of a wishful thinking on your behalf). Although, the peace talks are expected to last for 4 months but there are chances that the conference will be called off earlier due to the restless nature of both sides.
