WASHINGTON, March 4 (UPI) — The Palestinians are "not easy partners for peace," Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak said.

Israel may have to "consider unilateral steps that would include demarcating a line within which Israel would keep settlement blocs and ensure a Jewish majority for generations to come," Ynetnews.com quoted Barak as saying Sunday at an American Israel Public Affairs Committee conference in Washington.
