News the HP Doesn't Cover: More Palestinian Demands

More demands about the state of the negotiations from the "poor suffering Palestinian victims:"
The Palestinian Authority will not continue with peace talks as long as Israel continues building in the settlements, an unidentified Palestinian official said Wednesday, amid reports of possible logjams in the negotiations.
“The Israeli side is determined to continue its settlement and we cannot continue negotiations under these unprecedented settlement attacks,” the official told French news agency AFP after a contentious meeting between the two sides.Palestinian and Israeli negotiators met for a sixteenth round of talks, but the talks quickly deteriorated into a shouting match with no discussion of the issues at hand.Palestinian Authority negotiators were reportedly furious over what they called Israeli “lies” to the public about an agreement with the Palestinians to continue building in the settlements in exchange for the release of 104 Palestinian prisoners jailed since before the Oslo accords, an official told Israeli daily Yedioth Ahronoth. The Israeli side took offense and the meeting broke down.
