JERUSALEM (AP) _ A Palestinian official is denouncing Israel's
plan to unilaterally set its final borders within four years.
Saeb Erekat said it shows Israel is
planning to dictate, not negotiate.
A former Israeli security chief says Israel's acting premier
plans on another unilateral West Bank withdrawal after forming
Israel's next government.
Border-setting is the key agenda of Acting Prime Minister Ehud
Olmert's party. It holds a commanding lead
going into Israel's March 28th elections.
Israel will seek crucial U.S. backing for any further West Bank
unilateral pullouts. Hamas militants sworn to Israel's destruction
will soon rule the Palestinian Authority.
