Israeli Foreign Ministry says international community must clarify to PA it will not deal with Palestinian government that includes unreformed Hamas. Jerusalem threatens to revoke economic incentives to Palestinians. Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman speaks out against the Doha Agreement.
Diplomatic officials are also waiting for a Palestinian decision on whether to continue with preliminary peace talks in Jordan. There has been considerable pressure from the US and EU to do so, and Quartet envoy Tony Blair is continuing to consult intensively with Israeli and Palestinian officials and other regional leaders to put together a package that would lead to a continuation of the Jordan talks
