Israel's foreign minister Thursday described as a gimmick a Palestinian-proposed U.N. Security Council draft resolution that calls for a peace deal within a year and an end to the occupation of Palestinian territories by the end of 2017 .The draft resolution was formally submitted by Jordan to the 15-member Security Council Wednesday, which means it could be put to a vote as soon as 24 hours later, but it does not guarantee this will happen.Lieberman said the draft resolution, which follows the collapse in April of U.S.-brokered talks on Palestinian statehood, would only deepen the decades-old conflict.Jordan's U.N. Ambassador Dina Kawar, the Arab representative on the Security Council, said the draft would take time to complete.The submitted Palestinian draft appeared to reflect some European ideas.
