    Ynet interview: Outgoing Palestinian Prime Minister Ahmed Qureia optimistic about peace prospects despite Hamas election victory, says Islamic group will back peace process if it sees genuine Israeli intentions Despite Hamas' elections victory and rise to power, Israel has a partner for negotiations if it wishes to advance a genuine peace process, outgoing Palestinian Prime Minister Ahmed Qureia told Ynet in an interview Saturday. "Unilateral moves would only increase the hostility between the two peoples," Qureia said. "On the Palestinian side there's a leadership headed by Abu-Mazen (Mahmoud Abbas) that is willing to enter diplomatic negotiations immediately and reach a...

"The Israelis say the road closures are to defend themselves but it is really just a procedure to make our lives difficult, especially during...

    A Palestinian Legislative Council investigation into the reasons for the chaos in the Palestinian Authority found that the main reason for the anarchy is that the PA and its leader, Yasser Arafat, have failed to make a clear political decision to end it. The report also calls for an end to Qassam rocket fire into Israel and attacks inside Israel, the resignation of the members of the Qureia government and general elections. "The main reason for the failure of the Palestinian security forces and their lack of action in restoring law and order," says the report prepared by the...

    GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip - Gunmen angry over Yasser Arafat's overhaul of his security forces burned down Palestinian Authority offices in Gaza on Sunday.

"I totally reject your resignation and consider it nonexistent," Arafat told Qureia at a meeting Sunday, according to Cabinet minister Saeb Erekat. Qureia told his Cabinet on Saturday he was firm in his decision to quit. Dozens of...

    United States President George W. Bush told Jordan's King Abdullah on Thursday that he would send a letter to Palestinian Prime Minister Ahmed Qureia in the near future to balance the letter of understanding he had transferred to Prime Minister Ariel Sharon. Bush said he would shortly send a personal letter to Qureia "that will explain my views, and we will expand dialogue between the United States and Palestinians." In the letter, Bush will clarify that the U.S. believes that the problems concerning a final status agreement between Israel and the Palestinians should be resolved in negotiations between the two...

    JERUSALEM (AP) - Palestinians will give up their goal of independence and push instead for a single Arab-Jewish state if Israel carries out its threat to unilaterally impose a new boundary with Palestinian areas, the Palestinian premier said Thursday. A single country including Gaza, the West Bank and Israel would spell disaster for the Jewish state because the country would soon have an Arab majority. That would force Israel to choose between giving Palestinians the right to vote and risk losing the country's Jewish character, or becoming a minority-ruled country like apartheid South Africa. U.S. Secretary of State Colin...

    JERUSALEM - Palestinian Prime Minister Ahmed Qureia said Monday he was ready for a summit with Ariel Sharon (news - web sites), but only if the Israeli premier agreed to move on some tough Palestinian demands, including halting the construction of a West Bank security barrier. Sharon said he would not accept preconditions for a summit, and the dispute threatened hopes for a decisive effort to end three years of violence and jump-start the stalled "road map" peace plan. Momentum seemed to be building in recent days toward such a push after the main Palestinian militant groups agreed to a...

I've heard one definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again while expecting different results. That's exactly what Israel and the United States are doing by endlessly pursuing peace with people who have no interest...
