Time to stop blaming Israel

United States President Barack Obama has warned the Palestinian government of Mahmoud Abbas that 'there will be consequences' if he declines to open direct talks with Israel, Arab media reported on Saturday.

'It is time to go to direct negotiations,' Obama said in a letter sent to Abbas and published Saturday by the London-based newspaper al-Hayat.

The US 'will not accept a rejection of (Obama's) proposal to go to direct negotiations' and 'there will be consequences to this rejection in the form of lack of confidence in Abbas and the Palestinians, which can have further impact on US-Palestinian relations,' the letter continued.

There is no Palestinian nation because of the refusal of the Palestinian leadership to negotiate intelligently for the past 20+ years.
