Negotiators tell Palestinian officials they will not get a state based on 1967 borders, Israeli reports say.
This is so fucking evil. And not at all surprising.

Construction on new homes in illegal Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank has jumped by 70 percent in the first half of this year, the Israeli NGO Peace Now reported.
The group said on Thursday that 1,708 new homes were started between January and June, compared with 995 in the same period last year.
Israeli media reported in May that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had ordered a freeze on new tenders for settler homes. But most of the new construction is taking place in areas where tenders are not required, circumventing the freeze."

Atta Sabbah, 13, is paralyzed after an Israeli soldier shot him in the spine after buying a soda..
On 21 May this year, Atta wasn’t throwing stones. He wasn’t involved in clashes or provocations with soldiers. Atta committed no known crime.
He completed his final exam and went to retrieve a school bag that had been taken from him by a soldier the day before. On his way to the Jalazone Boys School, he stopped by a small corner shop to buy a soda. He opened the can, saw two soldiers hiding behind a wall, and turned around to run away.
One of the soldiers aimed a machine gun and fired a single bullet, changing his life forever. One “dum-dum” or exploding bullet severed Atta’s spinal cord and he fell to the ground. The bullet ravaged tissues and caused irreparable damage to his spleen, pancreas and liver, and left him with multiple fractured ribs.
Atta is a harmless child who used to spend his free time tending to his pigeons. Every day now — as he tries to maneuver his way through the narrow, uneven streets of the refugee camp — Atta is reminded of his new reality.
