A closed Palestinian shop in the Israeli settlement in Hebron. Note door welded shut.There will no longer be any one-sided concessions. We don't agree to any extension of the freeze, not for three months, not for a year, half a year or one minute. It needs to be understood that signing a comprehensive peace agreement, which means an end to the conflict, settling of mutual claims and recognition of Israel as the nation state of the Jewish people, this is an unattainable goal, not in the coming year and not in the next generation.

-- Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman, in comments just days after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas agreed to hold regular US-brokered talks following last year's summit in Washington, 7 September 2010
