Gaza, ALRAY - Israeli chief negotiator warned the Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas of ‘paying a price’ for not accepting the Israeli demand of a Palestinian recognition of Israel as a Jewish State, Israeli media reported.
Should Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas keep sticking to his positions unacceptable by neither international nor Israeli community, including his position refusing to recognize Israel as a Jewish state, ‘he shall pay the price for that’, Tzipi Livni stated.
Livni, who is the occupation state’s minister of justice, said in weekly “Meet the Press” show broadcast on Israel Channel 2 on Saturday evening that she hopes an agreement could be reached with the Palestinian negotiator within the remaining three months of negotiations.
She noted that the role of the Israeli leadership is to create a new reality and not be influenced by opinion polls, in her response to the latest opinion polls where only 7% of the Israelis appeared confident that ‘peace talks’ would end in a final-status agreement.
Responding to being accused of showing sympathy with the organizations calling for a boycott of "Israel", she said that such accusations are unbearable.
It’s noteworthy that Livni is identified as a war crimes suspect, as she was foreign minister at the time of the 2008-2009 Gaza invasion and directed threats against Gaza in a press conference joined with Egyptian foreign minister from Cairo.
