Israel Awards PA 5,000 Work Permits

After previously agreeing to release 104 Palestinian terrorist prisoners for the restarting of Israeli-Palestinian conflict negotiations, Israel on Sunday made another concession to the Palestinian Authority (PA), issuing 5,000 new work permits to allow residents of PA territories to work in Israel.

The first 26 Palestinian terrorists in the prisoner release were freed in August.

A senior Palestinian source told The Associated Press that the Palestinian team in Israeli-Palestinian conflict talks has rejected an Israeli proposal for a Palestinian state under provisional borders, saying that the PA fears that the provisional borders would become permanent.

“Israel is using the issue of security to take land,” he said. “From the general discussions we had in the last couple of weeks, the Israelis have shown no intention to dismantle any settlement.”

The Palestinian source said the current proposals indicated that Israel would seek to retain control over about 40 percent of the West Bank. Other senior officials in Ramallah indicated that negotiations “are not advancing and will likely soon collapse.”

    how many work permits did the PA issue to the neturei Karta, Satmar and other anti-Israel parasites to work for the PA?

  2. Tova Bar-chaim says:

    At this particular time when events in Syria might literally explode around the world, Israel is making an extremely risky and potentially dangerous decision, all in the name of "gestures" to "buy"(bribe) the PA into "negotiating". Really??!!! If the PA was seriously interested in negotiating anything with us there would be no need for "gestures", which is just 'new speak' for CONCESSIONS! This latest concession coming on the heels of "warnings" from Syria and Iran of waves of terrorist attacks, kidnappings etc.is absolutely insane. Why would we open our doors to let in more potential terrorists…..don't we have enough already!!!!
