RAMALLAH (AFP) -- The Palestinians have rejected an Israeli proposal to extend the crumbling peace talks beyond April 29, saying it was akin to "blackmail," an official in Ramallah told AFP on Monday.

"Israel is practicing a policy of blackmail and linking its agreement to releasing the fourth batch of prisoners with the Palestinians accepting to extend the negotiations," the official said following a late-night meeting at which the proposal was laid out to chief negotiator Saeb Erakat.

The WHY DOES RAMALLAH CONTINUE THIS MYTH OF NEGOTIATION with their occupiers/oppressors,when even Israel's"good Arabs"in the fiefdom of Ramallah know that the ONLY 'negotiation'is to accept Israel's demand for a "Jewish State"which automatically includes A-P-A-R-T-H-E-I-D & MORE subjugation&expulsion for any non-Jews!Palestinians will still be treated as the Jews 'jews',on the bottom rung below Kach-Shas-trash,black Jews&Ultra-Orthodox!"Blackmail"? No,just COLLUSION,with ethnic cleansing!

Talk now or talk later, but talk with Israel the Palestinians must, if they want a state. Accusations may make Palestinians feel better, the it won't give them a land to call their own.

Palestinians should stop wasting their valuable time and approach ICC & other UN organisations. If they don't then you can be rest assured that Israel will continue to build settlements and it will become even harder for them to give up those settlements and will claim demographic changes thus could not withdraw from illegally occupied territories

3, AkeenReader, the ICC and other UN organizations are smart enough not to waste their time with the Palestinians. It isn't their problem. It is the Palestinians' problem, which is why the Palestinians must stop wasting their own time and negotiate with the expectation they will not get their heart's desire - or even anything close - but will get a state to call their own.

-1- The PLO began the "Myth" in Oslo, so Israel would allow them to return and give them lands, and - They continue the Myth, to have their lands expanded beyond Gaza and Area A, in the only way that has ever succeeded so far, and - Palestinians are free to reject Israel talks as 'blackmail', just as They are free to remain occupied and stateless, and after They make these choices, they must not blame others for them later. -3- The ICC & other UN organizations are all certain dead-ends.
