It is clear that we have reached a dead end in peace negotiations with the Palestinians, Strategic Affairs Minister Avigdor Lieberman said Monday. Lieberman told the cabinet that reports from the negotiating team showed that the "minimum [demands] of the Palestinians are more than the maximum [concessions] of Meretz Chairman Yossi Beilin." "We have to leave the peace talk plain and move over to the security plain - a comprehensive operation in Gaza in order to stop Kassam and mortar shell attacks," continued the strategic affairs minister. Lieberman repeated his demand that "the Palestinians must recognize Israel as a Jewish state as a condition for any negotiations."
