Yesterday Arutz Sheva reported on fresh efforts to reduce widespread Arab-Palestinian violence directed against Israel’s Jewish civilians, and its security forces:
“Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas has demanded that Israel provide him political incentives in exchange for his efforts to stem the latest wave of Arab terror, Channel 10 reported Saturday night.
Israel, however, is reportedly reluctant to agree to Abbas' demands and has only offered the Palestinians technical solutions.
Abbas attended a series of meetings on Saturday with both US Secretary of State John Kerry and Jordan's King Abdullah on calming tensions in the region.
According to Channel 10's report, Abbas made clear in the meetings his expectation that Israel release the fourth round of security prisoners - a condition for talks during US-sponsored negotiations a year and a half ago. Those prisoners contain several convicted murderers.”
