    Envoys from the Middle East Quartet met in Brussels on Friday amid calls from the Palestinians to step up action to halt continuing Israeli settlement activity.

    Officials from the United States, United Nations, European Union and Russia gathered "to consult as they routinely do over the phone as well", said a spokesman for EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton.

    But on the eve of the meeting chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat called on the group "to restore credibility and relevance to its role" by taking firm action to stop Israeli settlement construction.

    "Since the Quartet was created, the Israeli settler population in the occupied Palestinian territory increased by one fifth," he said in a statement.

    "Yet the Quartet has not taken any concrete measure to stop this alarming trend, which the international community unanimously agrees now seriously threatens the prospects of the two-state solution."

    Have you ever seen a more worthless bunch of losers?

    How many years have they sat around with their thumb up their ass doing nothing?

    If you mean the Palis, it's been 64 years.

    Does it really matter what they do or say?
    From the Hamas Covenent:
    "Initiatives, and so-called peaceful solutions and international conferences, are in contradiction to the principles of the Islamic Resistance Movement... Nationalism of the Islamic Resistance Movement is part of its religion. Its members have been fed on that."

    "Now and then the call goes out for the convening of an international conference to look for ways of solving the (Palestinian) question... the Islamic Resistance Movement does not consider these conferences capable of realising the demands, restoring the rights or doing justice to the oppressed."

    "There is no solution for the Palestinian question except through Jihad. Initiatives, proposals and international conferences are all a waste of time and vain endeavors. The Palestinian people know better than to consent to having their future, rights and fate toyed with."

    "restoring the rights or doing justice"

    Wow those are some pretty nasty demands.
