    "The primary argument is that by pursuing this process in the UN, the Palestinians are trying to achieve their aims in a manner other than negotiations with Israel" - Instructions to Israeli Diplomats// Here is the Big Lie for all to see. In reality, President Abbas is begging Israel to enter into peace talks. He says that if peace talks don't start before September, ONLY then he will go to the UN. Recently, when France suggested a peace conference in June/July, Abbas quickly said yes while Netanyahu is still silent, apparently looking for a good excuse to say no. Abbas is insisting on a settlement construction freeze as a necessary condition for talks ('you can't discuss sharing the pizza while one side keeps eating it'), which makes sense. Netanyahu has recently presented to the US Congress a long list of preconditions for peace talks, while in the past he insisted on 'no preconditions'. Here we see the Big Lie. It actually reverses the truth. The Palestinians are interested in peace talks while Israel is trying to avoid them.
