After the commotion over the breakdown of talks, DEBKAfile’s sources predict that the US-led Israel-Palestinian talks will be back on course much sooner than would seem possible. The deal will be quickly closed for the release of 420 jailed Palestinians, including Israel Arab terrorists, and a partial freeze on settlement construction. The US will grant the Israeli spy Jonathan Pollard an early release and he will arrive in Israel to great rejoicing. Still to be worked out is the timetable and order of events. That is why Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has not uttered a word over the crisis. He has left it to others to berate the Palestinians for fabricating the breakdown of negotiations, while he goes ahead with Secretary of State John Kerry and Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas to put the package together.
