Guidelines for 'peace talks' leaked?

Elder posts a list of leaked 'guidelines' for the 'peace talks' that came from something called 'Palestine Today' put out by Islamic Jihad. Elder speculates that 'moderate' 'Palestinian' President Mahmoud Abbas Abu Mazen may have sent them to Moscow for approval and they may have been leaked that way. Color me skeptical. Here are some of the more outlandish ones.
3)  "The security barrier will establish a security border for the Jewish state and a permanent border for the Palestinian state, subject to change by mutual agreement" (h/t Ali) Not sure what this means unless they are saying that Israel's borders will not go beyond the Green Line, which is strange if there is a land swap.
I think this means that the 'security fence' will be the border between Israel and the 'Palestinian state,' subject to adjustment. This sentence doesn't say anything about a land swap. The 'security fence' incorporates 9.4% of the land mass of Judea and Samaria and include 85% of the Jewish population. The land swap is a separate issue.
5) Israel freezes construction on some outposts, but not on existing settlement blocs including Maaleh Adumim, Har Homa, Gilo, Neve Yaakov, Ramat Shlomo, Kiryat Arba, and some others with large populations
Kiryat Arba is not part of a 'settlement bloc' and I find it hard to believe that the 'Palestinians' would not go ballistic if Israel builds there. There is no way that the 'Palestinians' are going to give us anything other than very limited access (if that) to the Hebron - Kiryat Arba area.
6) Residents in the "frozen" settlements will be given the choice of citizenship at the conclusion of the process
Not sure why this is phrased this way and doesn't relate to 'settlers' on the other side of the 'security fence.'
7) At the end of the negotiations it will be announced that the conflict is over and there will be full normalization of relations between Israel and all Arab countries announced at an Arab League meeting; Israel recognizing Palestine within the borders mentioned above and Palestinian recognition of Israel as the state of the Jewish people
Hard to believe. See below.
8) At the end of negotiations some Palestinian families will be allowed to re-unite in the WB and Gaza; others will get he right of compensation or immigration to Arab countries, especially Gulf countries, with them being naturalized in Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Kuwait and Qatar; not sure about the source of the compensation
Again, hard to believe, especially in light of the experiences that Arab countries have had with the 'Palestinians.' Kuwait? You've got to be kidding.

My view is that this was put out by Islamic Jihad to embarrass Abu Mazen. I don't believe this set of  guidelines is real. And why would they send it to Russia? Brussels or Riyadh seem like much more likely destinations.

I wonder how fast it will take for the Muslims to deny Jews access to the Kotel?
