MK Paz-Pines slams PM's handling of talks with Mitchell

MK Ophir Paz-Pines (Labor) slammed Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Wednesday, following what he describes as "another meeting without results with the American mediator George Mitchell." Pines said that Netanyahu's "attempt to hold the stick at both ends is in no way an expression of policy and vision", and is rather aimed solely at "political survival." The MK went on to mock Netanyahu for trying to please every side in the discussions. "Freezing? Restrictions? Construction? Economic peace? Regional peace? Peace in 2016? It's tiring to dance in every wedding," he said. "The public is tired of the spin. A true leader must decide," Pines said, adding that the current handling of the negotiations was "ridiculous and weakens Israel."
