John Greaves recently spoke to Hanan Ashrawi.
Doctor Hanan Ashrawi came to international prominence when she was the Official Spokesperson of the Palestinian Delegation to the Middle East Peace Process in Washington and Madrid.
She's negotiated with many U.S. Presidents and Israeli Prime ministers over the years in her pursuit for peace and Palestinian self-determination.
John Greaves spoke with her for Worldwatch-PM:
Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's dismissed a French proposal for a new international peace conference saying it only encourages Palestinians to shun compromise.
On Friday the French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said that if the new initiative didn't succeed, France would have no choice but to recognise a Palestinian state.
