JNS.org – Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi claimed in an interview on Sunday that Russian President Vladimir Putin is ready and willing to host direct peace negotiations in Moscow between Israeli and Palestinian leaders.

“Unfortunately, the case is like stagnant water and requires international will and effort,” the Daily News Egypt quoted El-Sisi as saying in an interview held with editors of Egyptian newspapers. “There is more and more conviction on behalf of the Israelis of the importance of the peace process, which is a positive indication.”

El-Sisi, who supports the recent French initiative for peace talks, also said that the internal fighting between Hamas leaders in Gaza and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’s Fatah faction continues to be an obstacle to reaching an agreement.

Egypt’s president hopes that both Israelis and Palestinians will allow his country to play an integral part in renewing ties that broke down in 2014.

    My guess is Putin has more wisdom than El-Sisi when it comes to negotiating with Gods people. El-Sisi does not understand that if you attempt to cross those red lines God has warned you about it will mean certain death for your country. Putin on the other hand instinctively knows that getting intentionally on the wrong side of God is a form of madness or lunacy so to speak. Now if the French proposal will be used as a starting point God has already listed wanted signs in heaven for these two lunatics….that would be Holland and El-Sisi l, it does not say wanted dead or alive. These two gad flys have warn out their welcome in Heaven and hell is most certainly their destination.

    Why do we need world intervention to start peace talks.? If our supposed peace partner is seriously interested in making peace,all he has to do is stop attacking the only peace party that is NOT BELIGERANT! If you genuinely want peace,then WALK THE WALK,DON’T TALK THE TALK,GET IT???
