The Palestinian leadership submitted a proposal to renew peace talks with with Israel that drops their long-standing demand that Israel ceases all West Bank settlement construction, a top Israeli official said on Wednesday.

According to officials with knowledge of the proposal, the Palestinian Authority informed the Quartet two weeks ago that it would renege on its demand for a settlement freeze if Israel releases 100 prisoners as a show of good will.

Screw all that!
 
There is no such thing as a Palestinian Language!
 
There is no Such thing as a Palestinian Blood line!
 
There is no Such thing as a Palestinian DNA Marker!
 
There has never been a Palestinian government nor was one ever attempted except as a tool to further undermine Israeli and Jewish rights to exist and in peace!
 
There is no unique Palestinian History!
 
There are no Palestinian Archaeology digs!
 
There are no Palestinian Archaeology artifacts or antiquities!
 
There is no such thing as a Palestinian!
 
So called Palestine at one time included Jordan.  Why isn't Jordan considered a larger part of Palestine or even East Palestine?
 
Palestine is a joke and a synthetic invention of displaced losers, who are nothing more than homeless and stateless Arabs owing their DNA and historical lineage to every country that surrounds Israel
