The treaty being formulated at Fatah's convention in Bethlehem, combined with unrest in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, is working to destroy any chance of coming to an agreement with the Palestinians in the next few years, according to Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman.
Speaking to 29 Democrat congressmen in his Jerusalem office Monday, Lieberman said that the Palestinians' uncompromising, extremist positions on Jerusalem, right of return, and settlements are making a gap between us which will be difficult to bridge.
He also stated that there was no body representing all Palestinians, though there is "Hamastan in Gaza and Fatahland in Judea and Samaria."
