What is this? Arab nations betraying the Palestinian cause by secretly having contacts with Israel??
(IsraelNN.com) Vice Premier Shimon Peres said in an interview published by a Qatari newspaper Thursday that Israel maintains quiet communication with most Arab nations in the Middle East.
Peres, a second-time candidate for the presidency when Moshe KatzavÖ²â€™s term ends July 1st, declined to tell the Ö²â€œQatar TribuneÖ²â€ which Arab countries are in touch with the Jewish State.
Peres said he could not name IsraelÖ²â€™s Arab contacts in order to avoid embarrassment on either side.
