The Financial Times quotes the chief Palestinian negotiator, Nabil Sha'ath, as saying that the exchange of ideas had been positive. The International Herald Tribune quotes Mr Arafat as saying that progress had been made. The Guardian quotes Saeb Erakat, a member of the Palestinian National Authority in charge of election planning, as saying: "We were more than reassured by the Israelis today, We believed Israel wanted to negotiate a new accord, but now we know they are committed to the original declaration of principles signed in Washington last year."
The sheer weight of evidence, over a protracted period of time, would indicate that you are following your own, quite idiosyncratic agenda, which has little to do with providing your readers with a balanced account of events in the Israeli-Arab arena.
Yours sincerely, HELEN DAVIS Director of British Israel Public Affairs Centre London, EC1
