More Reuters errata

 Reuters' Ari Rabinovitch tells us:
Israeli-Palestinian peace talks have been stalled since late 2008 when Israel launched a three-week assault on Gaza in which 1,400 Palestinians and 13 Israelis were killed.
No.  Peace talks have been stalled since two months earlier when PA President Mahmoud Abbas walked away from the table after refusing Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's extraordinary offer of 97 percent of the West Bank (also, Judea and Samaria) for a Palestinian state and the PA unsuccessfully bid to have the Quartet dictate that a Palestinian state be established on the 1949 armistice lines with "East Jerusalem" as its capital.
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has insisted Israel completely stop settlement building in occupied land before the talks can resume, and has rejected a temporary construction freeze ordered by Israel in November as insufficient.
No.  Abbas has insisted that Israel stop building on all land beyond the 1949 armistice lines, including private land that had been owned by Jews going back to before 1949.
