Don't Plan on Peace

Israel's foreign minister said Thursday that he has a message for the U.S. Middle East envoy George Mitchell who is visiting Jerusalem this week: there's no hope for a peace deal with the Palestinians for many years. "I will tell him clearly, there are many conflicts in the world that haven't reached a comprehensive solution and people learned to live with it," the minister Avigdor Lieberman said on Israeli radio. Mitchell heads to the Middle East hoping to jump start talks that have been stalled since Israel's war in the Gaza Strip in January.
