      PA Expected to Reject Kerry's Agreement Draft

      Ministers Ya'alon, Liberman and Livni say the PA will probably reject Secretary Kerry's agreement draft proposal, since they will refuse to recognize Israel as the Jewish state, and will not accept proposed security arrangements in the Jordan Valley.

      Kerry is expected to also request the sides agree to extend the peace negotiations by a few months. Israel will demand PA recognition and acceptance of the end of the conflict. The PA will demand a state based on pre-'67 lines with land swaps, a position the PM is opposed to.
