Jerusalem - Israel has rejected a French initiative aimed at restarting peace efforts with the Palestinians, saying direct negotiations are the best way to reach a final agreement between the sides.

Paris is to host an international meeting in May of 20 countries, including Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Jordan, to discuss the peace process. Israel and the Palestinians have not been invited.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in a statement Thursday that “Israel adheres to its position that the best way to resolve the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians is direct, bilateral negotiations. Israel is ready to begin them immediately without preconditions.”

The Palestinians have welcomed the French proposal.

The last round of Israeli-Palestinians peace talks, mediated by the U.S., collapsed in 2014.‎

I dont know why the French even tried. Israel will never and according to their ideology cannot make peace. Just rewind the history and let Zev Jabotinskys - Bibi's forebears words be heard.
The Israeli true colors hide under the tortured pain of being 'terrorized'.

As no rational person could possibly believe your outlandish comment, you are either just a miserable person who posts such drivel in order to "push people's buttons", or some crazed Neturei Karta whacko. Regardless, not nice to upset people.

I know one thing the French made a peace treaty with Hitler and see how that turned out. Now with the new citizens that are coming in to France, in the thousands, let us see how well their peace treaties will work, I hear they are having communication problems with them.
