Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs Issue Brief

"Prisoner Release - Veering Off the Roadmap"
Whatever happened to the first sentence of Phase I of the roadmap, which demands that "the Palestinians immediately undertake an unconditional cessation of violence"??

How is it that "within a very brief period, Israel has found itself at a strategic disadvantage as the Palestinians focus our own attention on the issue of prisoner release and effectively divert world attention from critical demands for performance on the Palestinian side"?

More in the brief prepared by Eli Kazhdan, former foreign policy advisor to Minister Natan Sharansky.
