Palestine Papers expose the canard that Israel has no peace partner

This latest leak of diplomatic documents proves what I had read elsewhere, which is that Palestinian diplomats know what to negotiate and what not to negotiate, and that the Palestinian leadership in the West Bank wants peace. A peace with the West Bank Palestinian leaders is what will give momentum to those in Hamas who are trying to figure out how to walk their way to peace talks with the Israelis, too. The hard liners in Israel's leadership are truly missing an opportunity for peace.

The Palestine Papers also explode the myth that Israel has nobody to talk to. The people who don't seem to want to talk are Israel's current leaders.

Oh, and if anyone thought the Palestinian "right of return" was anything more than a bargaining chip, they haven't read the article from Haaretz to which I linked above.
