      Knesset Debates Territorial Compromise with PA

      On Wednesday a special session was held at the Knesset to discuss the latest proposal of the Arab League regarding territorial compromise. Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu asserted that the negotiations could progress only when both sides agree to a cessation of violence and mutual recognition of each other's right to self determination. He called upon Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas to drop his previously stated preconditions for entering negotiations. The Arab League has called upon Israel to relinquish much of the land it liberated form Jordanian occupation in the 1967 Six Day War.
