10 Pres. Obama urged Palestinian Pres. Mahmoud Abbas to help end a stalemate in peace talks with Israel by an April 29 U.S. deadline. PM Benjamin Netanyahu demands Abbas recognize Israel as a Jewish state, implicitly ending Palestinians' demand for a "right of return." Abbas refuses. He wants Israel to proceed with a big prisoner release.
