BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s special envoy Yitzhak Molcho has informed the Palestinians in Amman that Israel will be ready to give up the Jordan Valley as part of the final status solution, an Israeli newspaper reported Monday.

Hebrew-language Maariv reported that Molcho suggested during the exploratory meetings in Amman that Israel would agree to abandon control on the Jordan Valley in exchange for intensive security measures at the Jordan river.

Commenting on the report, the Israeli Prime Minister's Office said that such leaks "are meant to distort the negotiations which both sides agreed to keep secret and to avoid leaking information to media outlets."

Meanwhile, Palestinian officials told Maariv that Israel requested to maintain control of the Jordan Valley for 10 more years.

However, the Israeli source which Maariv quoted, confirmed that Israel preferred intensive security measures at the Jordan river to maintaining control of the Jordan Valley.

Maariv highlighted that Netanyahu had referred in a recent speech before the Knesset to security measures at the Jordan river as a guarantee to Israeli security.

Palestinains should not trust the Israeli's until and unless they have handed a written submission on borders & security. The Israeli's are liars and cannot be trusted like the Amercians. They are like a chameleon who changes its colour every time.

@1 AkeenReader/UK: Truelly, Israel is blatant liar and untrusted. The main thing Palestinian want is Independent state and revision of 1948 border aggrement.

The Israelis told the PLO that they could have a state, on basically what they have now (Areas A/B & Gaza), with borders largely similar to the Security Fence Route, and THAT YOU CAN TRUST, BUT CAN NOT ACCEPT.

It is really the Israeli side that can NOT afford trust, where:
- Arabs signed Armistice Agreements in 1949, but invaded in 1967, and
- the PLO signed the Oslo Accords but never collected illegal weapons, continues to incite violence, and attacked Israelis during the Intifada !!!

'Give up the Jordan Valley'?? Ooo! The world bows to your limitless beneficience, Israel! The only 'guarantee' for Israel's national security is to honor international laws,UN Resols,Conventions & stop OFFENDING/KILLING your Arab neighbors.Vacate all those Jewish-only colonies on stolen Arab land & honor RightofReturn.Why should any Arabs around U make concessions,when 8/10's the WHOLE cake,by law,belongs to THEM?Declare your borders Israel,&obey international laws.All else,is garbage!

You know what all you above idiots....war is the only way. It is all you ever did . You never tried to negotiate and as far as I am concerned Israel was stupid to give Gaza back. You want Israel gone......come and get it.

To AkeenReader #1 'Palestinains should not trust the Israeli's until and unless they have handed a written submission on borders & security...' There's no reason to trust them then. They agreed to the 'Road Plan' in 2004. They agreed to an independent Palestinian state when they made peace with Egypt. They accepted the 1947 UN Partition boundaries -- presumably in writing.

@9) Arnold / Canada In a way you might be right. War will be the only way anything will be solved. But who will be the main player?. I say Iran. Wait until the US make a move on Iran and they will retaliate against Israel. War will erupt, the Palestinians probably will stay on the side line, Syria might get involve, Assad needs sort of a victory maybe taking the Golan Heights back, anyhow it will be a mess but the outcome might turn to be in favor of the Palestinians.

@14 reveals all - not that it took much revealing. World Peace if only Israel were gone. The grotesque absurdity and stupidity and sheer Hitlerian hatred encompassed in that statement really is impressive. In any event, it is the Arabs who are actually, really, killing themselves - Syria, Libya, Egypt, Iraq, Yemen. One after the other, they are destroying themselves with their own hands. Only I don't say ha ha. It is just too pathetic.

#12:JB/USA: JB,that just shows how dumb U are? Israel's self-destruction would actually be one of the biggest TRAGEDIES to global Jewry. & all coz of belligerent political/ideological ZIONISM! Which has systematically destroyed regional equitable PEACE,since 1935 B4 Israel was born! Israel COULD'VE been such beacon,admired by ALL,as a mentor of pluralism/multicultural life in a Holy Land?But,hateful Zionism turned it into another S/Africa,& an ethnic death camp! Zionism, is Israel's WORST ENEMY!
