Toufic Haddad, co-author of Israel, the Palestinians, and the U.S. War on
Terror, and Palestine
correspondent for The Faster Times speaks in Jerusalem to Lia
Tarachansky of The Real News about
Israel’s “settlement freeze.” He says that accepting Israeli Prime Minister’s
offer to enter negotiations
simply because of this partial and temporary move would be political
suicide for the Palestinian
Authority. He speak of the future of Palestinian politics and the death of
the “peace process.”
