Look what the Palestinians disagree with...

This is from a text of a joint Israeli-Palestinian document...
The Palestinians oppose a number of statements appearing in the Israeli draft in the preamble proposals: Israel's formulation that the realization of self-determination is of "each people in their own territory," and that Israel is "the homeland for the Jewish people and Palestine is the homeland of the Palestinian people."

The Palestinians also oppose the mention of the word "terrorism" in the sentence discussing "bringing an end to incitement, extremism, terror and violence." They also oppose including in the joint document the phrase "secure the release of [captured soldier] Gilad Shalit."
The Palestinians just can't seem to live with the idea what Israel is a homeland for the Jews. I find that very disturbing - exactly why is Israel negotiating further???
