and these entail Israel releasing the remaining prisoners it promised and the Palestinians extending the peace talks duration to a number of months beyond April 29th. For Israel to release these prisoners is difficult, but in return, American-Israeli ex-spy, Jonathan Pollard, should be released as well. It seems that from the Israeli Government side the stumbling block to full agreement to the Framework Agreement for the peace process is more a technicality issue of freezing settlement activities in West Bank and its coalition members of cabinet voting for its applicability in reaching peaceful arrangement with the PA. By the Palesitnians continuing the talks on achieving the two states outcome, and the Israelis reneging once again on a peace arrangement, the Palestinians then have reason to approach the diplomatic track through the U.N. To move into measures utilizing the U.N. is not helpful for neighbourly relations in the future. However, extremists on both sides would be content on failure of Framework Agreement.
