Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman lashed out Monday at fellow ministers for espousing contradictory solutions to the conflict with the Palestinians, maintaining Israel needed one binding diplomatic plan.During back-to-back presentations, Justice Minister Tzipi Livni said Israel should seek to resume peace talks with the Palestinians despite the establishment of a Hamas-backed unity government; Interior Minister Gidon Saar spoke in favor of maintaining the status quo; Economy Minister Naftali Bennett called for the annexation of parts of the West Bank.Lapid made similar remarks Sunday night, calling for renewed talks with the Palestinians and an effort to normalize relations with moderate Arab nations such as Saudi Arabia and the Gulf states.Israel promptly bolted the talks, saying it would not negotiate with any government backed by the Islamist Hamas movement, whose charter calls for the destruction of the Jewish state.
