17. Taba is well documented - but "nothing is decided until all is decided"
was and is the position of the PA - which makes a "road map partial agreement" a rather curious idea.

Taba had many - but not Arafat - agreeing that returning to the West Bank was no problem, but returning to Israel was to be severely limited in number - with Israel the final arbiter of the yearly number - but with reparations paid to those who do not return.

Two maps were on "offer" - or at least on discussion - with green line adjusted per PA suggestion but with land exchange making the final Israel about 3.5% larger than green line Israel, and Israel suggesting a map that was green line Israel plus 6%.

Google should bring up a memo (written by a ARAB? UN? fellow if I remember correctly - but I would not put a great deal of faith in my memory - thank goodness for google!) that says that it records that which was discussed and the position of the parties when Arafat walked out.
