8:05 am
between the palestinian leadership and the israeli government. unfortunately well before i start let me say that elections are an internal israeli issue and we. intend to intervene anyway on these elections but a spurious question we don't see that there is any party or any come of this action that would lead towards any prospects of political. talks with the palestinian side with the intention of ending the prolonged occupation of the city through the palestinian the. i.p.o. appreciate your position about not wanting to wade into israeli domestic politics but. the way the way it's looking right now there may be an an israeli future israeli government that will not contain benjamin netanyahu and that given the way
8:06 am
things have gone between the palestinian leadership and his government would that be would that be a better scenario for the palace thing. well certainly. being out of the picture is is something good for peace but we don't see that the platform that others run and the ideas that they carry really something that would lead to talks or peace they all promoted. this extreme towards palestinian promises them with quote numeration of the school or the old regime and racist. motions. intends to further expand that the policy. on the expense of the palestinian. so the promises are not necessarily promising now if that is there will be a shift and the doc. would be in or
8:07 am
respect the terms of reference that the peace talks start in the 1st place the palestinian side i think is will be more than happy to sit down and talk with you off and engulf you along population the source possible that this is not the case we will continue the course certainly will and depending on the rights and exposing this racist long list the regime will or. there's also talk about the prospect of a of a unity government in israel one that would contain more moderate elements would the prospects for for. dialogue with the palestinians be better if that were the case. again well this is again something that the israelis have to decide on for artists there is a palestinian side that is ready and willing to sit down and discuss and talk about
8:08 am
process that sort of peace which is based on ending is really is a long book a patient we thus far as i said before the platforms that all parties struggle where either extreme or part extreme or even more fanatical extreme so we don't see any of these. platforms promising for peace. according to analysts some of them might be for electoral. and we wait and see the palestinian side is really ready and willing to sit down. to end the occupation and to discuss all matters that relate to that and. it was really sight good to speak with you ahmad hijazi thanks so much for being with us. us sectors they might pump a.r.v.'s traveling to saudi arabia after saturday's attacks on 2
