Al Jazeera interviews Abdel Bari Atwan, Editor Al-Quds Al-Arabi

Al Jazeera interviews Abdel Bari Atwan, Editor Al-Quds Al-Arabi:

"AlJazeeraEnglish | January 24, 2011

In the largest leak in the history of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Al Jazeera has obtained 1,676 classified documents in total.

The documents are derived from a decade of meetings, internal emails, reports and studies, notes, maps and draft agreements.

They detail talks between the Israeli government and the Palestinian Authority, along with the United States.

However, the most controversial revelation so far is the apparent willingness of the Palestinian Authority to give concessions on disputed areas of Jerusalem.

Yasser Abed Rabbo, a senior member of the Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO) executive committee, said in his reaction to the revelations, 'They want to compete with WikiLeaks and come up with parallel stories. But WikiLeaks doesn't bring those presenters or people such as Atwan in order to sensationalise and provoke and serve a preordained position.'

Al Jazeera's Teymoor Nabili interviewed Adbel Bari Atwan, editor of the Al-Quds Al Arabi newspaper, the man in question named in Rabbo's reaction to the leaked documents.
