The Prime Minister's Office issued a statement Tuesday bluntly denying a report that Binyamin Netanyahu intends to cave in to extreme Arab demands over Jerusalem and demographics.
 
A Kuwaiti newspaper, Al Jarida, reported that Netanyahu will present a diplomatic plan next month that includes Israeli acquiescence to a preliminary "Palestinian" with eastern Jerusalem as its capital. The paper also claimed that Netanyahu agreed to hand over the Temple Mount and other holy places to international sovereignty.
 
Netanyahu also supposedly consented to let Arab "refugees" into Israel, in accordance with a plan to annihilate the Jewish state demographically, known as the "right of return."
 
Al Jarida said that these concessions were detailed by Israeli delegate Attorney Yitzchak Molcho in a secret meeting with Palestinian Authority negotiator Saeb Erikat, ahead of Netanyahu's upcoming major policy speeches in Washington.
 
"There was never any secret meeting between Attorney Yitzchak Molcho and Saeb Erikat," the PMO said, "and therefore it is also clear that the alleged contents of the meeting have no basis in reality." 
 
The Kuwaiti newspaper claimed that the United Nations, United States and Russia were involved in the plan to turn over the holy sites to international hands.
