It is now up to the Palestinians to decide whether peace negotiations resume, Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said on Thursday. Speaking with Army Radio, Lieberman said that the "ball is in the Palestinian court." His comments came a day after Israel announced a a 10-month halt in West Bank settlement construction. The Palestinians rejected the freeze because it did not include east Jerusalem. The Palestinians have refused as long as construction continues. "What we could have contributed, we did," Lieberman said. "The Palestinians will make their considerations based on internal considerations that don't need to concern us."
