Also surprising was the fact that Sharon suggested that there would be follow-up meetings in the weeks to come, after he returned from a visit to the United States. These developments were hailed as highly unexpected since Sharon frequently asserted that he would not negotiate with the Palestinian leadership until there was a sustained cease-fire. Indeed, since September 2000 when the Intifada began, there have been over 1,000 deaths and no sign of sustainable peace. The developments were particularly ironic given the fact that Sharon made very polemical remarks earlier in the week regarding his regret that he had not killed Arafat in 1982 during the invasion of Lebanon when he had the opportunity to do so.

At the same time, Israel took over nine Palestinian institutions in occupied East Jerusalem including Orient House, the de facto political Palestinian headquarter in the city.
