      Foreign Ministry report: New initiative for peace process

      By Ha'aretz Service

      The Center for Diplomatic Research at the foreign ministry
      prepared a classified report with recommendations for a
      diplomatic initiative to reestablish negotiations with the
      Palestinian Authority (PA), Israel Radio reported Monday.
      Among the recommendations, the report proposes a
      generous transfer of additional land to the PA that would
      have been included in the third IDF redeployment scheduled
      in the Oslo accords.

      It also proposes entering into negotiations with the
      Palestinians to reach a further interim agreement and
      implementing immediate measures to ease the situation of
      the Palestinian population.

      The report also included an analysis of Palestinian Authority
      Chairman Yasser Arafat's personality and noted ways in
      which pressure could be brought to bear on the Palestinian
      leader.

      Far-right Tourism Minister Rehavam Ze'evi (National Union -
      Yisrael Beiteinu), speaking in an interview on Israel Radio
      said that the report was "an embarrassment to the Sharon
      government that was founded by the majority of the nation
      saying no to (Foreign Minister Shimon) Peres"

      Adding that the "paper deserves be filed in the drawer with
      the Oslo-Munich files...We need to take back what we have
      already given them and not give them any more (land)."
      Science Culture and Sport Minister Matan Vilnai (Labor) said
      that any initiative that would promote a diplomatic solution
      was acceptable to him.
