Olmert offers PA 98.1% of W. Bank

Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has discussed with the Palestinians transferring to them 98.1 percent of the West Bank, Channel 2 reported on Sunday evening.

The report on the ongoing negotiations was broadcast in advance of Tuesday's planned meeting between Olmert and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.

The Prime Minister's Office declined to comment on the news item and said only that many such media reports had been published in the last months regarding the talks.

Earlier in the day, during what could be his last cabinet meeting before he becomes the head of a transitional government, Olmert addressed Israel's relationship to the West Bank when he spoke of a voluntary evacuation bill to help relocate settlers living east of the security barrier.

"The vision of a greater Israel no longer exists. Those who speak of it are delusional," the prime minister said. No v

  • I'm so glad I don't live in either of those places. No matter how much you give or how much you take, there is always going to be bitching and wars. You can give the palestinians 100% full rights to everything they requested for jerusalem... but you still will have those extremists who will blow shit up and shoot rockets... which will cause israel to create a new buffer, taking pa land again.

  • The problem is, they keep handing back land to the Palestinians, who then use that land to launch more rockets, so the IDF has to go and retake that land back to secure it. And thus the cycle continues.

    • They don't have the balls to enter Gaza again.

      And their have been NO rockets launched from the West Bank, yet Israel keeps on building settlements, the barrier, and oppressing the Palestinians in their own land

      AND ISRAEL NEVER GAVE BACK GAZA, THEY STILL CONTROL AIR, SEA, AND BORDERS. THAT IS NOT A WITHDRAWL SO FUCK OFF!

    • thanks for be able to look at the reall picture of the situation...

      the history of the past 15 years shows us that the pales. could have got their own free state years ago!!
      much of the current situation is also due to their descisions.

    • "Fuck off", thats mature. Especially from someone spouting off without ANY knowledge of the situation.

    • Not to mention... since the Palestinians were given the chance to form a government and rule themselves, they've proven unable and unwilling to do so in a civilized manner. Tribal infighting, stealing money, failure to maintain basic infrastructure, etc..., all the while Israel actually providing humanitarian aid, power, electricity, etc...

      The Palestinians are animals, and the world should be ashamed for falling for the same antisemetic propaganda over and over. If this was any other part of More..

  • Seems like Olmert actually wants peace. He is offering settlers over 1 million shekels to relocate to Israel:

  • Olmert: "I thought that land from the Jordan River through to the sea was all ours, but ultimately, after a long and tortured process, I arrived at the conclusion that we must share with those we live with, if we don't want to be a bi-national state."

  • It's good that Israel is doing this, but if they were serious about peace, they would abide completely by the various U.N. resolutions. This seems to me ,that Olmert is trying to take the focus off his incompetent leadership and his corruption charges.

  • What you all fail to recognize is that there is no palestine and never will be unless you can get more than two arabs to agree to something, which is an impossibility because of their nature and religion.
    Thus the cycle continues.
    Take it while it's on the table, or go piss in a bucket.
    98.1 is not enough for them, they want all of Israel, so it will never end, when will you realize this.
    You have watched it your whole life and still don't get it.
    The world is not enough for arabs, nothing is.

  • OLMERT IS A TRAITOR!
    What he is doing is illegal and punishable by Israeli law with long imprisonment or death!
    No land can be ceded without a public referendum. Thats the law!

  • "Olmert has also agreed that 5,000 Palestinian refugees would return to Israel - a thousand refugees every year for five years, according to the report"

    5,000 is nothing. 10s of millions of Palestinians live abroad and deserve to live in our ancestral land.

    This proposal also stipulates that Palestine would be forced to have NO ARMY = DEFENCELESS.

    Fair proposal my ASS!!

  • ....of WHAT IS LEFT of the west bank. The Israelis have already taken a huge amount of it...so its really just a bitch slap, as usual.

  • Good offer, given Israel's behaviour lately. But what is wrong with 100%? The west bank is a negotiated area anyhow and only a part of Palestine. Why do the Palestinians have to renegotiate what already has been negotiated and mediated by the UN? Why should they have to give up more than they were told to give up in 1947?

    Look at how Palestine land was chopped up in 1947 by the UN resolution 181

    • No chance for first UN partition plan borders.

      Everyone except the extremists on BOTH sides agree on the 67 borders.

    • Exactly why the Pali's will spit in his eye. 98% isnt enough! I can hear hamas now... "We will keep up the fight. Our Brothers and Sisters are Martyrs in this fight"! "We will not rest until the blood from every Jew runs into the sea" Besides, Nasralla needs a conflict to stay in power and to rally other Arabs around the Pali cause. There will be no settlement. Pali, please!

    • Hamas' political leader Khaled Meshal on Monday said Hamas would accept a Palestinian state in the West Bank and Gaza Strip along Israel's pre-1967 borders, and would grant Israel a 10-year hudna, or truce, as an implicit proof of recognition if Israel withdraws from those areas.
