Cabinet secretary Zvi Hauser on Tuesday said that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu clarified in his speech to the US Congress that the ball is now in the Palestinians court and if PA President Mahmoud Abbas accepts Israel as a the Jewish State, ninety percent of the problem will be solved, Israel Radio reported.

Hauser stated that all remaining problems could be negotiated, but it seems that there is not the slightest hint that the Palestinians were willing to recognize Israel as the nation state of the Jewish people.

The cabinet secretary said that Netanyahu expects Abbas to renounce Fatah's unity agreement with Hamas.
