The Palestine Papers: 

The documents show that the Palestinian Authority made unprecedented compromises on Haram Al-Sharif;

ceded the right of six million Palestinian refugees to return home (agreeing to the return of a limited quota of 10,000);

offered to Israel the annexation of all settlements in East Jerusalem except Har Homa;

agreed to land swaps that gave up precious Palestinian territory to Israel;

supported Israel’s self-identification as a “Jewish state”;

cooperated with Israel against the Palestinian resistance, especially Hamas;

made efforts to help the Iranian opposition

(the minutes revealed that PA chairman Abbas convinced a Palestinian businessman to give Iranian opposition leader Hussein Mousavi $50m to fund his radio station); and

pursued negotiations for the sake of its political survival.
