The US State department has a new "political horizon" draft which calls for Israeli withdrawal to the lines of June 4, 1967 and acknowledgment by Palestinians that refugees won't be settled into Israel. (details)

I find that offensive.... if the Palestinians violate more agreements and murder more civilians, will the State Dept. then sweeten the deal even more?

Arafat's response to the draft will be: "Yes, except for the part about the refugees. ... and except for any other obligation on the Palestinian side. You can't ask a people to give up their rights after all."
