Report: Kerry's plan to include release of 103 prisoners

"For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. [3] For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. [4] But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. [5] Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness." 1 Thessalonians 5:2-5 KJV.

US Secretary of State John Kerry's much-anticipated peace plan is to include a freeze on all settlement activity outside of the major blocs and the release of prisoners detained prior to the Oslo-agreement in 1993, London-basedAl-Hayat reported on Saturday.
Quoting an unnamed Palestinian official, Al-Hayatreported that the plan is based on the re-launch of direct negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians, and includes three phases that will happen from between six to nine months.
Kerry's plan will reportedly include an economic initiative intended to establish joint projects in the region and develop the Palestinian territories.
According to the anonymous source, the plan will go ahead in light of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's acceptance of US President Barack Obama's May 2005 speech, in which Obama called to establish an independent Palestinian state on 1967 borders. The speech also included acknowledgement of a land exchange taking into account the realities on the ground - in other words, major settlement blocs - and the recognition of the Jewish state.
