The Palestinian Authority must “stop its incitement to violence” and engage with Israel in “direct peace negotiations, rather than looking to the UN,” a top American diplomatic official said on Tuesday.

US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley made the statement after meeting with her Palestinian counterpart, Riyad Mansour — an encounter she described as “productive.”

“The US is committed to supporting a true peace process between Israel and the Palestinian Authority,” she said.

    Wait just a minute… A Palestinian (muslim) MALE ambassador is meeting with FEMALE counterpart and this meeting is productive? It might have been productive from US standpoint, but somehow I don’t think Palestinians call it productive and it might not have results as everyone would hope for. However, I do applaud Ms. Haley for starting these negotiations.

    Makes sense to me!

  • The PLO will not engage in direct talks with Israel, nor end incitement against Jews, until “reasonable” Arabs overthrow the PLO occupiers.
