Palestine Today, an organ of Islamic Jihad, has been a surprisingly good source for accurate news (that doesn't involve Islamic Jihad.)

They published a set of supposed guidelines for the "peace" talks starting this week, and they don't sound like someone's idea of misinformation.

So here they are, as best as I can translate them, and you can make up your own minds:

It is expected that negotiations will take 6-9 months and will be based on the following guidelines:

1) Bilateral talks without any preconditions but following the guidelines listed here.

2) Jordan will participate in meetings relating to refugees, Jerusalem and borders where necessary.

3)  "The security barrier will establish a security border for the Jewish state and a permanent border for the Palestinian state, subject to change by mutual agreement" (h/t Ali) Not sure what this means unless they are saying that Israel's borders will not go beyond the Green Line, which is strange if there is a land swap.

4) Land swaps of roughly 8-10% of the territory of the West Bank

5) Israel freezes construction on some outposts, but not on existing settlement blocs including Maaleh Adumim, Har Homa, Gilo, Neve Yaakov, Ramat Shlomo, Kiryat Arba, and some others with large populations

6) Residents in the "frozen" settlements will be given the choice of citizenship at the conclusion of the process

7) At the end of the negotiations it will be announced that the conflict is over and there will be full normalization of relations between Israel and all Arab countries announced at an Arab League meeting; Israel recognizing Palestine within the borders mentioned above and Palestinian recognition of Israel as the state of the Jewish people

8) At the end of negotiations some Palestinian families will be allowed to re-unite in the WB and Gaza; others will get he right of compensation or immigration to Arab countries, especially Gulf countries, with them being naturalized in Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Kuwait and Qatar; not sure about the source of the compensation

9) Jerusalem will be placed under joint international/Palestinian/Israel/Jordanian rule for ten years with Israelis having the choice as to their nationality

10) I think that outstanding issues on specific land issues as well as citizenship issues both within the area and in Gulf countries will be pushed off to committees to speak about in coming years.

Also some details on prisoner releases , Palestinian elections, when the details of the agreement would be made public.

It sounds like this document might have been sent to Moscow by Abbas for consultations, and it might have been leaked that way.

Arabic readers can correct whatever I got wrong, or fill in any blanks for me.

UPDATE: Ali helps with #3.

Elder of Ziyon - حـكـيـم صـهـيـون

This blog may be a labor of love for me, but it takes a lot of effort, time and money.

I've written hundreds of scoops and sometimes my reporting ends up making a real difference. I appreciate any donations you can give to keep this blog going.
