Senior Fatah official calls meeting with Israelis 'disappointing'

A senior official of the Fatah terror organization has called Tuesday's meeting between representatives of Israel and the terror group 'disappointing.'
Mahmoud al-Aloul, a senior Fatah official in the West Bank, said Wednesday that the meeting in Amman between chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat and Israeli envoy Yitzhak Molcho was very disappointing for “us and the Jordanians.”

“The Palestinian leadership has spared no effort to seek peace and has complied with all [peace] initiatives,” al-Aloul, a member of the Fatah Central Committee, said in a speech on behalf of PA President Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah. “But all our efforts have been in vain.”

Al-Aloul claimed that Molcho came to the meeting, which was held under the auspices of the Quartet, empty-handed and without new ideas.

“The Israelis are not prepared for any solutions,” he charged.

Israeli officials, on the other hand, were reticent to speak about the talks, with one government official saying Jerusalem would honor an agreement reached during the meeting – that neither side would discuss the negotiations – and that the Jordanians would act as spokesmen.

Presented with al-Aloul’s comments, however, the official said it was incumbent upon all parties to take the “right steps” in the beginning of the process.

“The process is new, it is fragile, and it is easy to throw a spanner in the works,” he said. “We hope that no one will do that, that people will act responsibly and give it a chance.”

Erekat, meanwhile, denied an Israel Radio report that the two sides had agreed to hold another meeting in Amman on Friday.
Note that there is no mention of any 'new ideas' from the 'Palestinians.'

Unfortunately, if you tell a lie often enough, people start to believe it. That's what the 'Palestinians' are doing.
