Palestinian reaction to Sharm al-Shaykh announcements

Here are two different accounts of reactions inside the occupied Palestinian territories. On is from Danny Rubinstein, Palestinian Affairs analyst for Ha'aretz. The second is from Laila El-Haddad, reporting in Gaza for al-Jazeera.

Isn't it interesting that the al Jazeera piece quotes at least one person who feels positive about it, if not quite optimistic while Ha'aretz seems thoroughly glum. The overall thrust of both pieces is pretty similar, though.

What is so damn depressing and infuriating about this is that you won't see anything detailed like this in the US media, let alone something that is openly sympathetic to the plight of the Palestinians.
