Text of Palestinian Prisoners' Document - National Conciliation Document of the Prisoners - by Marwan Barghouthi, Abdul Khaleq al Natsheh and Coalition of Prisoners: Palestinian endorsement of the two-state solution based on the 1967 borders (the 'green line'). Eminently just and reasonable, except that they might be more forthright about a pragmatic solution to the refugee problem; and they might have paid more attention to a solidarity movement in Israel, the US and the world. The problem for the Palestinians is that Zionist Israel now has and has never had any intention of ever withdrawing from the Occupied Territories (except when forced to). On the contrary the whole point of colonialist zionism is to take Arab lands by force, kill or expel the local population, bulldoze or destroy their farms and houses, and build Jewish-only settlements.
