JNS.orgWith renewed Israeli-Palestinian conflict negotiations underway, Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat warned against Israeli concessions relating to his city.

“If the deal collapses because it hinges on the Jerusalem issue, so be it. It is better not to make any deal than to agree to a bad deal,” Barkat told Israel Hayom in an interview published Friday.

The next round of Israeli-Palestinian conflict negotiations will take place Aug. 14 in Jerusalem.
