I usually find a great deal to criticize about Israel's policy regarding its settlements. This time, however, I would have loved that the following question be asked of Ms. Ashrawi. "On December 8th 2009 the Jerusalem Post reported the following: "Olmert reportedly offered the PA an even more generous offer then Livni, offering that Israel annex only 6.5% and swap 5.8% of lands, so the Palestinian state would constitute 99.3% of the 1967 territories. He additionally offered that five Arab states would be involved in governing Jerusalem, which would be divided based on its demographics. The Palestinians rejected the offer." Is this true? Second, if it is even mostly true would not such an offer at least deserve something like "we still have reservations as it stands but this proposal is definitely a good step in the right direction and deserving as a basis of further discussion"
