shook hands today over an agreement designed to jolt the peace process back to life with Israeli troop pullbacks from Hebron and rural areas of the West Bank The postmidnight talks at the border between the autonomous Gaza Strip and Israel set the stage for a showdown later today in Israels 18member Cabinet Approval however was expected with a margin of one or two votes and Israels withdrawal from 80 percent of the West Bank city of Hebron could come as early as Friday Israeli and Palestinian sources said Speed was considered important to limit the ability of extremists to create trouble Bibi is a declared a banner on an Israeli bus in Hebron referring to nickname It was signed by the extremist anti Arab group Kach Netanyahus most ardent past supporters the Jewish settlers of the West

accord left many questions unanswered In particular there were loopholes about the extent of three further pullbacks in the West Bank where Palestinians want to create an independent state Palestinians who currently control 27 percent of the West Bank want 80 percent or more to be in the autonomy zone by the last withdrawal in mid1998 Israel however has given no hint of how much additional land will be turned over and it could be as little as 10 i Netanyahu suggested to Jewish settlers earlier this How many consumers can recall the name of your business doesnt come to mind
