he states look after all the gestures this Likud coalition has done, what type of response do they get with no continuation of peace talks by the PA. But then he's asked if he would talk to the current PM Salam Fayyad and he responds, " God forbid". What does this mean when even U.S. President George Bush met with Fayyad two years ago? One thing for sure, I'm not used to Israel having this type of foreign minister. Here's a metaphor: When my father would come home from the supermarket and having CHOSE the wrong type of parsley or bought something she had already bought, my mother would yell at my father, (you know over-reacting Iraqi-Israeli Jews) for not inquiring about grocery needs. You know, trivial matter. So he'd respond in Arabic, " A sha yakuka lechwasi ?" - which translate, " Should I tear my clothes?" - a sign of Jewish mourning. That's what I'm thinking about the current diplomatic impasse!
