Palestinian Negotiator: Kerry Plan Includes Israeli Withdrawals

By: JTA

Israeli negotiators are discussing a series of limited withdrawals linked to progress by the Palestinian Authority in maintaining security, a senior Palestinian official said.

The withdrawals are part of a plan for a peace agreement being brokered by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, according to an interview with Yasser Abed Rabbo published in the London-based al-Hayat daily. Abed Rabbo said the concessions will include land in the Jordan Valley.

“There are talks on long-term security arrangements and standards [that would be] subject to so-called improved performance on security by the Palestinians, overseen by Israel,” said Abed Rabbo, a senior member of the Palestine Liberation Organization. Israel would determine “in the end, whether the desired level had been reached or not, although the Americans say they will be present and involved in evaluating this performance so that Israel will evacuate some areas, especially from the Jordan Valley.”

Speaking in broader terms, Abed Rabbo said “the plan proposes Palestinian recognition of Israel as a Jewish state, the establishment of the Palestinian capital in a part of East Jerusalem and solving the refugees problem in accordance with former U.S. President Bill Clinton’s vision.”

But Rabbo said there are considerable gaps between the positions of the Israeli government and the Palestinian leadership. Netanyahu ”is refusing to open the file on Jerusalem,” he said, while the Palestinian side is adamant in rejecting Israel’s demand that it be formally recognized as the Jewish state.

Clinton proposed Israel allow a small number of refugees, estimated at up to 100,000 people, to move into Israel.

According to Kerry’s plan, settlement blocs would remain under Israeli control as would border crossings and air space, though American and Jordanian troops would be present as well, Abed Rabbo said. Israel, he added, would retain the right to enter Palestinian territory in hot pursuit.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is expected to discuss the progress of talks with Kerry on Friday in Davos, Switzerland, where both leaders are attending the annual World Economic Forum meeting.

  1. Kerry is a joke! Where the hell is he or his administration while the palestinians have continuously said that “no Jews will be allowed in Palestine” and “we will NEVER recognize Israel!” ???
    That is beyond deadly for Israel and ridiculous to even put that into the negotiations! After Israel removed themselves from gaza and the west bank…look at what has happened. There will NEVER be real peace negotiations with Israel from the “palestinians” or surrounding arab nations. That is a fact! As well as laws that state that if they are attacked they are allowed to protect themselves. Although, the obama administration and as usual the hate mongering u.n. do not care!
    Technically abbas is not legitimately in power. There were supposed to be elections, but some how that did not happen.

  5. Esther Lindberg says:

    Honour Israeli sovereignty!
    NO to false terrorists! Go home apartheid Kerry. Mend USA!
    Be blessed, blessing Israel who blesses all people.
    Shalom!

  6. Kerry should stay home making "catch up" for his "mommy", the Pals should go to their native countries like the Jews (Israelites, Hebrews) did to Israel.

  7. I don't understand why Netanyahu and Kerry are making negotiations about Israel=Palestina, Israel is a democratic country with a Prime Minister, a President a own parliament, the Kneset, suffraged by mayority from the Israeli people, in other hand Palestina, realy doesn't exixst, they don't have a democratic goverment, is a authocratic goverment supported from terrorists, arab countries which they don't want to have any palestinian in their countries, Kerry and Netanyahu why are speaking over two states, there are only one state, the State of Istael, there is no any Palestinian State, where are they, they are only named by the brits "Palestinian", but is is not a state, doesn't exists, is time the named "Palestinians" should go back to their native countries and let live Israel in peace, Kerry stay home making "catch up" with Obama.

  8. Kerry is wasting his time as well as Netanyahu. The Palestinians want the whole of Israel and bring the Palestinians from their well kept refugees camps to Israel. It is a simple story that Kerry and his adviser do not see or pretend not to see.
