Peace talk

Obama’s visit has reignited talk of a peace agreement, though it remains to be seen whether the talk will persist for much time after he leaves this afternoon.

Omer Barlev, a new Labor Party MK, says on Channel 2 TV that if Netanyahu wants to pursue a peace agreement Labor — which refused to join the coalition — will support the government.

Yossi Beilin, the former MK and peace negotiator, says Israel must understand that while Mahmoud Abbas may not be a flawless partner, whoever follows him will be worse.
