Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Silvan Shalom met today (June 27) with the heads of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, Executive Vice Chairman Malcolm Hoenlein, outgoing Chairman James Tisch and new Chairman Harold Tanner.

Foreign Minister Shalom updated them on recent developments in the region and the steps being taken towards the implementation of the Disengagement Plan. At the beginning of the meeting, Minister Shalom said: “To my great regret, the Palestinian Authority has to date not fulfilled its repeated commitments to put an end to terror and to dismantle the terrorist infrastructure. Our demand to dismantle the terrorist infrastructure is vital to the entire peace process. The current Israeli government will not revert to the deplorable pattern of shooting attacks in the morning, funerals in the afternoon, and peace talks in fancy hotels in the evening.”
