Peres: Peace with Palestinians is still possible

President Shimon Peres told top Christian clerics in Israel he still believes it is possible to achieve peace with the Palestinians, saying that negotiations should restart with the new year.
"I don't accept all the doubts," the president told Christian clerics and leaders at a meeting Thursday. "It is possible to find solutions and to begin negotiations because the alternative to not finding a solution is war and the loss of life."
