Opinion: Why ‘Palestine Papers’ are the Death of the Peace Process

avatar by News Editor

Jerusalem Post – While the ‘Palestine Papers’ are taken as truth to condemn Israel as a hard-hearted warmonger uninterested in peace, the whole affair can be summed up like this: The world is judging and condemning Israel on the basis of incomplete notes taken by Palestinian Authority junior staffers, many of whom are not fluent English-speakers (writing down statements made by people who are not native English speakers ) and who are passionate partisans of the Palestinian cause.

The documents have not been authenticated by anyone; they leave out the concessions made by Israel in the talks, and are filtered through the pro-Hamas, anti- Israel, anti-Palestinian Authority Al-Jazeera (whose record of reportage is marked by some amazing distortions and omissions) and the anti-Israel, Hamas-sympathetic, anti-PAGuardian.
