The United States does not plan to launch any mediation effort in the near future to try to help Israel and the Palestinians reach a final agreement, the Israeli daily Ha’aretz reported. In another development, political sources in Jerusalem denied a report in the Arabic newspaper Al-Quds that Prime Minister Ehud Barak might be willing to cede Israeli sovereignty over the Temple Mount in exchange for postponing the refugee issue in peace negotiations.
