JNS.org – The Palestinian Authority (PA) is a partner that only wants to receive, without giving anything in return, Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon said Tuesday during a visit to northern Israel to observe a military exercise.

Ya’alon said that Israel is in the midst of a crisis with the Palestinians regarding the peace process, as in recent months, the PA has told Israel that it is not prepared to discuss recognition of a Jewish state or giving up the “right of return.”
