JERUSALEM (The Associated Press)  —Israel’s defense minister on Monday called for a broad unilateral withdrawal from the West Bank if talks with the Palestinians remain stalled, saying in published comments that “practical steps” are needed to breathe life into the stalemated peace process.

AP

View Larger Associated Press FILE – In this July 29, 2012 file photo, Republican presidential candidate, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney meets with Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem. It is a taboo for Israeli leaders to give even the slightest hint of favoritism in politics in the United States, Israel’s closest ally.
