Barak Plan

NPR's Mike Shuster in Jerusalem reports Israel's Prime Minister Barak unveiled a new interim peace proposal today, but it was quickly rejected by the Palestinians. Barak offered the Palestinian statehood in parts of the West Bank and Gaza, but suggested putting off decisions on some of the key issues including the status of Jerusalem and the fate of the Palestinian refugees.
