Palestinian official: Peace possible in days, but Israel isn't interested

Abbas' spokesman: Peace deal means East Jerusalem will be capital of Palestine; Palestinian negotiator: Peace is not a favor, but a mutual interest.

"The Palestinian Authority on Monday rejected statements Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made at a parliament session, which he described as pre-conditions for peace.

Netanyahu said that the Palestinians have to recognize Israel as a Jewish state, solve the refugee problem outside Israel and accept a permanent Israeli army presence in a demilitarized Palestinian state in parts of the West Bank that does not include Jerusalem"
