Palestinian-Israeli Document Leaks

Well, this won’t be good for that minuscule sliver of hope people had for any sort of peace between Israel and Palestine.  Al Jazeera has obtained a large volume of official documents concerning the never-ending conflict, to be released in the coming days, and shared with The Guardian.

If the documents are to be believed (and they’ve been verified independently by both newspapers) it sounds as if Israel has no desire for peace and Palestine is willing to give up quite a bit to have it (they’ve offered huge concessions on settlements, return of refugees, and the division of Jerusalem).

Neither side comes out looking good in these leaks.
