Obama's Mideast Envoy: Israel 'Sabotaging' Peace Talks

"...it was that determination to use settlement activity as a way of sabotaging negotiations that succeeded.”

Martin Indyk, U.S. special envoy to the Israeli-Palestinian peace negotiations, blamed Israeli settlements for the recent breakdown of peace negotiations. 

Indyk was in Washington speaking at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy conference and conducted a question and answer session following his speech.  

According to CNS News, Israel engineered settlement activity as a way of "sabotaging" the peace process.

“The promoters of the settlement activity were the ones who were adamantly opposed to the negotiations, even though they were in a government that was committed to the negotiations.  And it was that determination to use settlement activity as a way of sabotaging negotiations that succeeded.”
