Palestinian President Abbas will tell Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that he has a dream whereby Israelis and Palestinians live together in peace and harmony. "In my dream", the former singer turned politician will say, "Palestinians will stop killing Israeli civilians and will only murder Israeli soldiers."
It is believed that this may not be enough to placate the Israeli leadership ahead of the peace talks in America. Only a couple of days ago, 4 Israelis were killed by supporters of Palestinian group Hamas. Abbas said of these killings "It is un-Palestinian to kill civilians and get away with it. Most of the time, Palestinians don't get away with it."
American politicians are bracing themselves to deal with anticipated stubbornness from Israeli negotiators. One US official said "The Israelis want an end to the violence. We will explain to them that they have to put an end to such unreasonable demands."
The Palestinian delegation has indicated that they expect the talks to be unconditional, as long as Israel gives up its claim to its 10 thousand year old city of Jerusalem and hands it over to the Palestinians, whose claim is more recent and therefore much stronger.
