For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.

For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. (1 Thessalonians 5:2,3)

When they say, Peace and Safety

PA: Israel offered 'territories for negotiations'

Palestinian source says American envoy received message that Jewish state would agree to place additional West Bank areas under Palestinian control in bid to convince PA chairman to resume peace talks

Israel has agreed to hand over additional West Bank areas to the Palestinians as a trust-building measure, Palestinians sources said Sunday morning when referring to US special envoy George Mitchell's efforts to resume peace talks between the Jewish state and the Palestinian Authority.

The claim has not been confirmed by Israeli officials.

Talking to Ynet, a Palestinian source said the offer Israel relayed to Mitchell and to Egypt included a series of relief measures, led by the transfer of Areas C (which are under full Israeli control) to the Palestinians and changing their status to areas under full (Areas A) or partial (Areas B) Palestinian control.

"The Israelis have expressed their willingness to seriously implement a real ease of restrictions, and not a fictitious one, which would help the Palestinian Authority," the source said.

"We will see how Mitchell's ideas are accepted by Arab states before we deliver response to the American side," he added.

The source also said that according to Mitchell's latest offers, the negotiations between Israel and the PA would resume in stages and on two different levels. According to the source, the parties would first clarify the basic guidelines of the talks on an indirect channel. If the first stage is believed to be a success, it would be followed by negotiations between high-ranking officials.

"In any case, it must end with a Palestinian state within the 1967 borders," the source stated.
