Defense Minister Ehud Barak on Monday slammed the political Left for demanding an immediate end to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. "The Left is wrong to demand an immediate political solution. There are no magical solutions," Barak said at the Labor faction meeting, according to Israel Radio. Also, while Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas announced that Palestinian elections would be held in the Gaza Strip, West Bank and east Jerusalem on January 24, Barak assessed that at the earliest, the PA elections would be held in July 2010. In any event, Barak reportedly said, there was no reason to stop negotiations with the Palestinians during the election campaign.
