Israel Rejects Carter-Ananan Mediation
The former U.S. president and former U.N. secretary-general belong to The Elders, an international conflict-resolution group established last year by British tycoon Richard Branson.
An Israeli newspaper described the Foreign Ministry's diplomatic rejection of this suicidal gift.
"Israel believes that at this time, it would not be right to introduce more players into a diplomatic process that is already in a complex stage,"
"Nothing good could come out of this initiative," he told Yediot. "Most members of the group, especially Desmond Tutu and Jimmy Carter, are people who nurse prejudices and have been shown to be hostile to Israel."
It is good Israel understands this and rejected them out of hand.
