The "Palestine Papers" Revealed - by Stephen Lendman

On January 23, Al Jazeera released breaking news on its extensive "Palestine Papers" coverage, introducing them, saying:

It "obtained more than 1,600 internal documents from a decade of Israeli-Palestinian negotiations," writer Gregg Carlstrom explaining that:

"Over the last several months, Al Jazeera has been given unhindered access to the largest-ever leak of confidential documents related to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict." They include "nearly 1,700 files, (and) thousands of pages of diplomatic correspondence detailing the inner workings of" peace process negotiations.

Included (from 1999 - 2010) were "emails, maps, minutes of private meetings, accounts of high level exchanges, strategy papers and even power point presentations...."

Releasing them from January 23 - 26, they reveal information about:

-- the PA's willingness to concede all East Jerusalem settlements except one;

-- PA "creativ(ity)" about Islam's third holiest site, Haram al-Sharif (Nobel Sanctuary), what Jews call the Temple Mount;

-- compromise on the right of return, suggesting  abandonment beyond token amounts;

-- numerous details of PA-Israeli "cooperation," suggesting complicity and unconditional surrender to Israeli demands; and

-- private late 2009 PA-US negotiator exchanges when Goldstone Report discussions were ongoing at the UN.

Because of obvious sensitivity, Al Jazeera will keep source information confidential as well as how documents were obtained.

In a January 23 London Guardian article, Karma Nabulski headlined, "This seemingly endless and ugly game of the peace process is now finally over," saying:

"It's over. Given the shocking nature, extent and detail of these ghastly revelations from behind closed doors (shows none) of the villains on the Palestinian side can survive it....A small group of (duplicitous) men who have polluted the Palestinian public sphere with their private activities are now exposed."

In fact, the PA is infested with traitors, some more recent like Salam Fayyad. As appointed prime minister, he's Israel's man in Palestine as a previous article explained, accessed through the following link:
