Forty-six percent of Jewish population in country supports renewing negotiations with Hamas-Fatah cabinet, if established. 'Olmert must answer challenge, start dialogue, says Geneva Initiative official
Members of the Geneva Initiative were satisfied by these results. "After a six-year standstill, the Mecca accord will lead to the establishment of a Palestinian unity government, providing an opportunity for Israel to renew negotiations for a permanent solution," said Gadi Baltiansky, Director General of the Geneva Initiative.
"Our studies, performed on a regular basis, show us that the majority of Israelis demand that the government return to the negotiation table. They accept the outline of the Geneva Accord as a basis for the permanent solution. The prime minister (Ehud Olmert) has to answer the challenge and start the dialogue without delay," Baltiansky said.
