Most of the time, you have been right in your predictions. And it seems hat this one may also stand true.

Whether to please John Kerry who needed some kind of a victory to show his boss an the world how good he is, or to gain time by making an offer that has yet to be concretized, or simply to show the world that Israel always makes concessions while Palestinians do not, the facts reman.

I do not know of any institution that released prisoners with blood on their hands, so no wonder the shock.

As for me, I doubt it will fully happen, especially when I believe that peace is not a word Palestinians know about or understand as we heard Abbas saying he does not want any Jew or Israeli circulating on a palestinian territory. As long as the ultimate goal is the annihilation of Israel, nothing will ever materialize
