Yechimovich: Stop Nitpicking at Abbas


MK Shelly Yechimovich (Labor) demanded that Prime Minister Netanyahu and the rest of his ministers start to take PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas' plan, which was laid out in an interview with the New York Times, in a more serious fashion.

"I suggest that Netanyahu and Bennett stop their incessant search for the faults and weaknesses in the Palestinian proposal, and come to terms with that even if Abbas is not a perfect partner, they should start negotiations in earnest, for the good of Israel," Yechimovich said.
