The Palestinian leadership is considering breaking past agreements signed with Israel in response to Israel's current policies, senior PLO official Yasser Abed Rabbo said in an interview with London-based Arabic language daily Al-Hayat, published Saturday.

"There are agreements between the PLO and Israel. One party cannot continue to be committed to these agreements forever while the other party violates them," said Abed Rabbo, an adviser to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas. "There may come a time, if the Israelis continue in the same policies, to reconsider these agreements,' he added.
Abed Rabbo stated that Israeli building in West Bank settlements would prevent a peace agreement from being attained.
"Any freeze should be total and comprehensive and not limited by
time...if we start negotiations without clear goals, then two months or
two years or two decades will not be enough for the negotiations to
reach their goal," he said.
Abed Rabbo was also critical of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu,
stating that he was "making an alliance with the right wing in the US to
weaken the [US President Barack] Obama administration."
