US 'offensive' aims for Jan. interim agreement, Jerusalem internationally managed, Israeli withdrawals and 'earned' Jewishness.
The Palestinian Authority (PA) negotiating team has revealed some of contents of the secretive peace talks it has been holding with Israel, under American auspices.
Independent journalist Baruch Yedid, who has maintained ongoing contact with official and unofficial PA sources, described to Arutz Sheva the situation taking place behind the smoke screen.
According to Yedid, talks are advancing with the goal of a framework agreement in January, well before the 9-month period set for talks.
Yedid's sources reveal that the agreement includes long term Israeli withdrawals over the course of 5 to 10 years in a number of stages, including withdrawals from Judea, Samaria and the Jordan Valley.
Kerry to "force" a deal
Concerning Jerusalem, Yedid reveals that discussions revolve around proposals following the model of the Vatican, whereby the Old City and the Temple Mount would be a sort of autonomous region under joint international management, including Israeli and PA representatives.
The PA sources further confirm reports from last Friday stating that Kerry's aids have rented 50 rooms in a Jerusalem hotel for January from which they plan to mount a diplomatic "attack" on Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and force him to accept the American plan, part of which posits an Israeli security presence in the Jordan Valley for 10 years.
In addition to the 50 rooms, reports reveal the Americans have rented 2 or 3 stories in a luxury Jerusalem hotel. There, the crew reportedly will bring computerized equipment, maps and databases to aid their efforts in dictating outcomes of the talks.
This January "offensive" is timed for after the Christian holidays, and is reportedly hoped by the Americans to succeed by the end of the month.

Jerusalem must remain totally under Israeli sovereignty.
Defensible borders must be maintained.
Israel must be recognized as a Jewish state.
If Jews are not to be allowed in PA areas then Arabs must not be allowed in Israeli areas.... Fair is fair.
May GOD smite those that stand against Israel.
Notice always that it is the Israelis who have to cede land and security to the filthy uncivilized so called Palestinians. The Palestinians never have to agree to anything except stopping terror attacks which they never honor anyway
RE: “This sounds really, really bad.”
To my ear, it sounds completely bogus.
Of course, if true, this would not be the first time that a Conservative political party has committed mass suicide.
But does it sound bogus that this is what Kerry and Obama actually will propose?
This is not bogus. Obama/Kerry want to push this “peace” deal through as quickly as possible before Obama becomes a total lame duck. And Obama wants a legacy. Obamacare is a flop and he needs some sort of a win, so this will be his win, at the expense of Israel of course. Bibi must not let Obama strong arm him, regardless of the cost. Bibi shouldn’t be afraid to cross Obama now, as he indeed will be a lame duck shortly, and the U.S. Congress for the most part is on Israel’s side and won’t let Obama pimp her. Also, Israel will shortly be oil independent, much wealthier, and thus is in a position to call her own shots. Screw Obama.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
“offensive” is right.
