Despite disagreements with the Palestinians, Israel is continuing efforts to bolster the Palestinian Authority, Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman told US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Thursday, according to Israel Radio. In a phone conversation, Lieberman told Clinton that nonetheless, the PA repeatedly works against Israel in the international sphere. The foreign minister also claimed that the Goldstone Commission's report, which accuses Israel of war crimes and possible crimes against humanity during Operation Cast Lead in the Gaza Strip, is an attempt to limit Israel's ability to fight terror. The report is also blocking Israel on the diplomatic front, he said. Lieberman went on to tell Clinton that when it comes to the war on terror, there is no coalition or opposition in Israel. He warned that the possibility of renewing peace talks with the Palestinians could be hindered if they continue on their current path.
