JNS.orgAmid the faltering Israeli-Palestinian peace negotiations, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday ordered Israeli government ministries to cut off high-level contacts with the Palestinian Authority on non-security related issues.

The Prime Minister’s Office said the move was a response to the recent Palestinian decision to submit applications to join 15 international organizations and conventions. The order does not apply to the Israeli Defense Ministry or to Justice Minister Tzipi Livni’s meetings with Palestinian negotiators in the U.S.-brokered peace talks, which have an upcoming April 29 deadline for an agreement.

    Israel should apply to 15 UN agencies herself. But we know Israel won’t be as welcome as the Palestinians who have responded to years of peace negotiations by either walking out on generous peace offers or engaging in jihad when negotiations looked as though they might be successful.
