Haaretz perpetuating false propaganda of the other side, as usual.
Haaretz says: “Disagreements over the future of Jerusalem were among the key points that stalled earlier peace negotiations with Israel before the outbreak of the uprising on Sept. 28, 2000”. I really can’t understand why they should say this. As far as I understood it, Barak more or less caved in to Arafat’s demands vis a vis Jerusalem (or at least offered a very generous and respectable compromise). The breaking point was the demand for right of return for all Palestinians and not Jerusalem.
