Shas negotiating attorney indicates Jerusalem not necessarily red line

Shas negotiating attorney indicates Jerusalem not necessarily red line
Dr. Aaron Lerner Date: 17 October 2008

In a live interview broadcast during the noon news program today of Israel
Radio, Attorney David Glass, who is negotiating with representatives of FM
Livni on behalf of the Shas party, explained that should a deal be reached
with Livni for Shas to join her ruling coalition and the agreement does not
preclude negotiations over Jerusalem with the Palestinians that the decision
to accept the deal would be left up to the Shas Council of Sages and Rabbi
Yosef.

Glass suggested that it might be possible to come up with a formulation on
the matter but that in any case the decision to accept deal that does not
prohibit negotiations over Jerusalem would be left up to the rabbis.

It would appear from the remarks that Glass was not given explicit
instructions that he should not even present a deal for approval by the
rabbis that allowed negotiations over Jerusalem.

Glass indicated in his interview that he does not share the view Shas does
on Arab-Israeli affairs but he declined to elaborate and only noted that he
was acting as their attorney rather than representing his own views.
