(AP, Reuters) Special Envoy George Mitchell says he wants to get the Israelis and Palestinians to the table soon, but far right Israeli FM Avigdor Lieberman comes out with a statement, "no chance of a comprehensive peace deal with the Palestinians for many years."

"Abbas has said repeatedly that he wouldn't go back to the negotiating table without a freeze. He also demands that talks begin where they broke off, with a promise from Israel that all issues will be on the table."
