Arab MKs to PA: Don't Talk with Israel

A study by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) finds that most Arab MKs are against peace talks between Israel and the Palestinian Authority and are advising the PA to withdraw from negotiations.

The study found that the Israeli Arab MKs believe that Israeli society and its leadership are not prepared for real peace and the negotiations improve Israel's image in the eyes of the and eliminate any audits, investigation of it, and boycotts against it. They warned that recognition of Israel as a Jewish state would endanger the PA Arab citizens and the right of return of refugees and demanded that PA negotiators refuse to recognize the settlement blocs and refuse to continue construction in Jerusalem.
