Quick! Who said this about whom?

"[diplomatic talks are dangerous. It allows them] to pursue, or exploit the talks, as they’ve done in the past, to deceive and to delay, so that they can continue to advance their ... program and get to the ... finish line by running the clock, I think the international community should not fall into this trap. I think the demands on [them] should be made clear."

In fact it was said by Bibi Netanyahu in Ottawa on Friday, arguing against negotiating with Iran about its nuclear plans. But more accurately it could have been said by any Palestinian leader in describing the futile "peace talks" that Israel is trying to get the PA to engage in. This, in fact, exactly describes Israel's approach to such talks since Netanyahu first became Prime Minister in the mid-1990's.
