The Palestinians have rejected an Israeli proposal to extend the crumbling peace talks beyond April 29, saying it was akin to "blackmail," an official in Ramallah told AFP on Monday.The Palestinians say that unless the prisoners are freed, they won't even discuss a possible extension of peace talks, but Israel has refused to release the detainees without first securing a Palestinian commitment to continue the talks beyond April 29 .The Palestinians are understood to have several conditions for extending the talks with Israel, including the release of more security prisoners and a freeze on Israeli settlement construction which has continued freely over the past eight months of talks.
