Israel to release 600 more 'Palestinian' terrorists?

The 'Palestinian' news agency Maan is reporting this evening that 'moderate' 'Palestinian' President Mahmoud Abbas Abu Mazen and Israeli Prime Minister Ehud K. Olmert are discussing the release of another 600 'Palestinian prisoners terrorists being held in Israeli jails.
Saudi newspaper Al Jazeera has quoted Minister of Prisoners' Affairs Ashraf Ajrami, speaking in Ramallah, saying that "Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and the Palestinian Authority Chairman will discuss a new list of prisoners in their next meeting, according to new criteria."

It is also reported that Ajrami said he will "meet with the Israeli internal security minister Avi Dichter and General Matan Vilnai to assign the criteria for the release of the prisoners."

Speaking to Ma'an, however, Ashraf Al Ajrami denied the al Jazeera newspaper reports published about a promise made by the Israeli government to President Abbas to study the release of 600 prisoners in the next few weeks

Commenting on published reports, the minister declared, "all the news about the release of prisoners is baseless." He further stated that "Israel has no intention to release any prisoner at the current time".
Recall that the last time, Olmert had trouble finding enough terrorists who met the criteria for release. Maybe this is another trial balloon?
