Palestine - Israel Summit Postponed

It is really interesting to hear an explanation for the postponement of this summit from chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Eraket.

Eraket told reporters: "The meeting will not take place on October 2, but only once the preparations for this summit have been completed."

"We don't want to meet just for the sake of meeting. We want a well-prepared meeting with an extensive agenda focusing on all the current issues," Erakat added.

Erakat also mentioned hoping that the U.S. or another member of the Quartet "could play a role ... to begin the de-escalation of this process." I assume he's referring to Israel bombing Palestine and selectively murdering Palestinians and moving settlers into East Jerusalem and other Palestinian territory. And yes, Hamas setting off explosives at a rally which they say was accidental...
