Article: Palestinians threaten to quit peace talks

Date: Sunday, October 3, 2010

This article reported: "Palestinian leaders said Saturday that they had lost hope in U.S. efforts to find a solution to the settlement construction standoff and repeated their threat to quit direct negotiations unless Israel agrees to halt building in the West Bank."

Absence of Rebuttal. Lack of Balance: The article repeated Arab assertions blaming Israel for their own threat to walk out on negotiations and quoted an Arab spokesman, Nabil Abu Rdeneh, claiming American efforts to find a formula to keep the Arabs from walking out "failed because Israel would not respond" without any reference to the Israeli position or any balancing quote from any Israeli source.

Effectively, the article simply repeated Arab propaganda.
