JNS.org – Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas on Wednesday rejected a peace initiative that was proposed by US Vice President Joe Biden during their two-hour meeting in Ramallah, according to the Palestinian newspaper Al-Quds.

The initiative was described as having four main stipulations: requiring that eastern Jerusalem be the Palestinian capital, an end to Israeli settlement construction in Judea and Samaria as well as eastern Jerusalem, Palestinian recognition of Israel as a Jewish state, and the Palestinians forfeiting their refugees’ so-called “right of return.”

In the Western push to revive Israeli-Palestinian peace talks, the Obama administration has been exploring possible alternatives to France’s recent proposal of a conference among Arab countries on that topic, according to the Wall Street Journal.
